An iconic floating hotel

By The Royal Yacht Britannia

All this can be yours

An experience beyond compare

Unique in every way

Luxury cabins 

Exquisite food and setting

With five star service 

The spirit of the sea

Welcome aboard Fingal, a luxury floating hotel permanently berthed on Edinburgh’s vibrant waterfront.

Fingal started life as a lighthouse tender, helping maintain lighthouses and transporting their keepers, equipment and supplies to some of the most treacherous locations in Scotland. 

Now she has been transformed into an exquisite 23 cabin boutique hotel and exclusive use venue by the award winning team at The Royal Yacht Britannia.

This is where time stills to a gentle deck stroll, where you can experience the unhurried luxury of life on board our ship.  

Where every contour and curve, every angle and tilt of Fingal is celebrated to offer a totally unique experience, far removed from your everyday world. 

A five-star experience

Step aboard and discover something completely different. A world-class destination with unique luxury cabins and decks for stargazing and Champagne.

Also offering the magnificent Skerryvore Suite, with a separate sitting room and private decking area for watching the sun go down.

Exclusively  yours

Fingal is also a perfect venue for exclusive use events, weddings, private functions, product launches and corporate gatherings.

Our elegant ballroom, with a grand sweeping staircase can seat up to 60 people for dinner.

This enchanting room also features a removable skylight and raised gallery for music and entertainment. 

Like No Other

Every inch of this noble ship has been refined for her new five star life, but the unmistakable Spirit of Fingal continues to shine.

We look forward to welcoming you aboard.
