Awarded AA Hotel of the Year Scotland, 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 offers beautiful cabins, dining and entertaining space. Seating up to 60 guests, or up to 100 guests for a reception, Fingal is ideal for exclusive hire, private parties, weddings and corporate events. A spectacular Ballroom reached by two sweeping staircases is nestled in the former hold of the ship, flooded with light from a movable skylight above. Whatever the occasion, Fingal evokes the glamour of the Hollywood age of travel. The AA five-star hotel provides an escape from the everyday with the finest of foods, festivals, history and heritage just moments away.

Each named after Stevenson lighthouses, Fingal’s 22 cabins are inspired by the ship’s rich maritime heritage. Sleek corridors lined with lighthouse photography leads to a 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 a private deck as well as a dining area 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 palettes inspired by Fingal’s journey from land and sea.

The two AA-Rosette Lighthouse Restaurant & Bar offers a stylish yet relaxed setting for enjoying Fingal’s exquisite Afternoon Tea or dining on dishes celebrating the best of Scotland’s larder. Raise a glass and enjoy a cocktail from the nautically inspired menu whilst the sun sets through the floor-to-ceiling glass windows.
