Luxury accommodation

by the Royal Yacht Britannia

Experience a new standard

of service and sophistication

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 a five star 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 a magnificent Penthouse 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; unforgettable weddings, private parties, product launches and corporate gatherings.

Our elegant ballroom, with a grand sweeping staircase can seat up to 80 people for dinner.

This enchanting room also features a removeable skylight.


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.
