Leith, Scotland hotels, Fingal, Edinburgh

A new £3.5 million development of former Northern Lighthouse Board ship ‘Fingal’ is set to transform Scotland’s hotel sector.

Due to be permanently moored at Edinburgh’s historic Port of Leith, Fingal’s unique style and top customer service will allow guests to have an unforgettable experience of the city from its shores.

Fingal is like no other in Scotland, and it is a privilege to take this historic ship and create a new, exciting and world-class addition to the Scottish tourism landscape,” The Royal Yacht Brittania head of hospitality & events Andrew Thomson says.

“The craftsmanship and design, inspired by Fingal‘s provenance and heritage, coupled with the best of Scotland’s larder will ensure our guests’ experience on Fingal is truly memorable.”

This major investment by the Royal Yacht Britannia’s trading company, Royal Yacht Enterprises, will provide a unique accommodation experience with its 23 charming cabins which are all named after Stevenson lighthouses.

Cabin style will include ones with a private balcony, a duplex cabin or the exclusive Skerryvore Suite.

This ship is perfect for any occasion with its gorgeous cabins, stylish furnishings and friendly crew making it a comfortable and exciting place for any guest.
