Former Northern Lighthouse Board ship set to transform Scotland's hotel scene

1 Min

All aboard Fingal, the former Northern Lighthouse Board ship in the Port of Leith set to raise the bar of Scotland's hotel scene when it launches in January 2019.

23 luxury cabins have been designed to the highest specification of craftsmanship complete with nautical touches, polished woods and a colour palate inspired by Fingal's journey from land to sea.

A stay aboard Fingal is a truly unique experience with guests able to relax under the starts on their own private deck, enjoy the best of Scotland's larder from coast to field, raise a glass in the Moët Hennessy Champagne bar or spend a special occasion in the stunning Skerryvore Suite. The spectacular ballroom in the bow of the ship, able to host 80 guests, evokes the glamour of the Hollywood age of travel and makes Fingal ideal for exclusive hire, private parties, weddings and events. 

Head of Hospitality & Events, Andrew Thomson, says: “Fingal is like no other in Scotland. 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.”

Reservations are now available for stays from January 2019.* For bookings, Tel: 0131 3575000 or visit

*Cabins from £300 per night based on two people sharing, includes VAT and a full Scottish breakfast.
