Travellers' Choice
Fingal opened in January 2019 in the historic Port of Leith as a unique addition to Edinburgh’s hotel scene following a £5 million development. This former Northern Lighthouse Board ship, begins an exciting new chapter offering beautiful cabins, dining and entertaining space. Developed by The Royal Yacht Britannia, Fingal’s 23 luxury cabins are each named after Stevenson lighthouses, inspired by her rich maritime heritage. Sleek corridors lined with lighthouse images lead to the choice of cabins, from a luxury cabin with access to the deck, a duplex cabin with comfortable living space or the stunning Skerryvore Suite with extensive outdoor space to relax and entertain. 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.

We stayed here to attend an event on the Royal Yacht in Feb 2020. The rooms are gorgeous and the staff are attentive but not intrusive. Excellent amenities. Comfortable and clean. Fantastic breakfast, too! A real luxurious gem.

I highly recommend Fingal. From the moment we arrived to when we checked out the service was first class. The afternoon tea is one of the best I have ever experienced and the mocktails are wonderful too. Fingal truly deserves to be number one on TripAdvisor. Faultless. Thank you to all the incredible staff for making our stay so memorable. Merry Christmas to you all and we look forward to returning in 2021.

After travelling from Kirkcudbright for my wife’s birthday we were delighted with the reception you get from the staff , very professional and polite especially under the circumstances of the pandemic . The ship is absolutely stunning, the rooms are first class everything about the ship welcomes you . Our evening meals were great with beautifully prepared food that tasted even better and the staff couldn’t do enough for you .would also say that the breakfast was fantastic with plenty of choice . Look forward to a return in the future
