Here is the finest luxury Scotland experience Fingal
Fingal is like no other in Scotland. It is a privilege to take this historic ship and create a new, exciting and world-class addition to the Scottish tourism landscape. 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 new £5 million development due to launch in January 2019, is set to transform Scotland’s luxury hotel scene. Fingal, a former Northern Lighthouse Board ship, begins an exciting new chapter offering beautiful cabins, dining and entertaining space, set in Edinburgh’s historic Port of Leith.
Leith has served as the port of Edinburgh for hundreds of years, the area’s original harbour dates back to the 14th century and has been visited by many travelling kings and queens, including Mary Queen of Scots and King George IV. It is also a hub of lively eating and drinking spots, creativity and cultural diversity.
Developed by the Royal Yacht Britannia’s trading company, Royal Yacht Enterprises, Fingal’s 23 luxury cabins are each named after Stevenson lighthouses, inspired by her rich maritime heritage.
Carefully considered design offers the highest specifications of craftmanship 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. Guests can choose from a luxury cabin with private deck, a duplex cabin with comfortable living space or the stunning Skerryvore Suite with extensive outdoor space to relax and entertain.
A stylish yet relaxed restaurant with banquette seating offers a light menu celebrating the best of Scotland’s larder, from coast to field. Raise a glass at the welcoming Moët Hennessy champagne bar or enjoy a cocktail from the creative menu. Spacious outdoor decks provide a blend of private and public spaces to bask in the quayside setting or sit out under the stars.
Hosting up to 80 guests, Fingal is ideal for exclusive hire, private parties, weddings and corporate events. A spectacular ballroom reached by a sweeping staircase is nestled uniquely in the bow of the ship and flooded in light by a movable skylight above.
From the moment of arrival, guests will be attended to with the highest levels of service to feel part of the new history of Fingal. Whatever the occasion, Fingal evokes the glamour of the Hollywood age of travel. She provides an escape from the everyday with the finest of foods, festivals, history and heritage just moments away.
