Fingal, Scotland’s only luxury floating hotel

The sister hotel to The Royal Yacht Britannia, Fingal is permanently berthed in Leith, a few minutes taxi ride from the centre of Edinburgh.

The ship started life as a lighthouse tender, helping maintain lighthouses and transporting their keepers, equipment and supplies to some of the most treacherous locations in Scotland.

The transformation to exclusive use venue and luxury 23 cabin boutique hotel accommodation was carried out by the team at The Royal Yacht Britannia. They have created a hotel with all the glamour and style of a superyacht but with an old-world elegance that is completely unique.

Fingal quickly achieved 5-star ratings from TripAdvisor, with guests noting high levels of service and extraordinary quality fixtures and fittings. The engines that originally powered the ship have been retained and are on view via a glass walkway.

Kitchen facilities were designed and installed by ScoMac Catering Equipment, utilising a package including Charvet Pro800 induction suites.
