Fingal is a truly unique ship, previously a Northern Lighthouse Board tender, helping maintain lighthouses and transporting their keepers, equipment and supplies to some of the most treacherous locations in Scotland.
Fingal has now been transformed into a 23 cabin boutique hotel and exclusive use venue by the award-winning team at The Royal Yacht Britannia.
Just two miles from Edinburgh’s city centre, Fingal is berthed in the historic Port of Leith. The lively district of Leith is a mixture of delightful waterfront cafes, restaurants, quirky shops and markets.
Anyone who wants to experience something totally different. Whether this may be a romantic night on board this historical ship or to have a delicious Afternoon Tea, dinner or cocktails and watch the world go by.
Fingal’s carefully considered design offers the highest specifications of craftsmanship and finish, with nautical touches and polished woods. Sumptuous Scottish leathers and the finest linens are in colour palates inspired by Fingal’s journey from land and sea.
Curves and tilts, deck spaces and beautiful lines tell the story of Fingal’s rich seafaring history, offering a totally unique experience.
