While we’re still being told to ‘stay at home’, with the roadmap out of lockdown starting to become a reality, breaks close to home may not be too far off.

First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has indicated that Scotland will be returning to a system of tiers, meaning that even when holiday accommodation reopens we may not be able to leave our local area.

This could provide the perfect chance to get away from it all without crossing Edinburgh City Council boundaries, while ensuring you stick to the Coronavirus restrictions you can find here.

The Edinburgh Green Boat offers quirky accomodation in Lochrin Basin, in the Fountainbridge area of the city, and is east to spot given its bright, vivid colour.

There’s a sun-dappled deck for al fresco food and drinks, while the surprisingly spacious interior includes comfortable kitchen and lounge areas.

The boat has two bedroom cabins, one double and one bunk bed room, so it’s ideal for a family break.Extra luxuries include two bathrobes, slippers, foot spa and complimentary water bottles, while the deck area also contains loungers, a barbecue, two fishing rods and two foldaway bicycles.

You can rent the boat from £200 per night from www.hostunusual.com.
