Ship shape

Commissioned in 1963 as a supply ship for Scotland’s lighthouses, Fingal has been exquisitely restored into Edinburgh’s most unique hotel stay.

In the port district of Leith, home to the Royal Yacht Britannia and an exciting dining scene, find Fingal in her own berth. 23 cabins and suites are cleverly arranged into the main and lower decks, each harkening back trans-Atlantic liners with Art Deco glamour, polished wood panelling and sparkling glass.

On the upper deck, you’ll find the convivial Lighthouse Bar and Restaurant and private dining room, while the centre of Edinburgh is just 10 minutes away.
