Fingal, the luxury floating hotel, permanently berthed on Edinburgh’s waterfront will officially launch in January 2019 and will be a first for Scotland, offering a unique venue for exclusive use hire; private events, weddings, and product launches.

The former Northern Lighthouse Board ship is a £5 million investment developed by The Royal Yacht Britannia, offering exclusive hire with 23 cabins, a ballroom with a sweeping staircase, and The Lighthouse Bar, for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The Ballroom is nestled in the former hold of the ship and can accommodate up to 80 guests for dinner.

The Lighthouse Bar on the Bridge Deck offers guests waterside views through floor to ceiling windows. The Bridge, is a private dining space with views, seating up to 10 guests in what was once the command centre of the Ship.

For overnight stays and exclusive hire, guests can choose from a luxury cabin with access to an outside deck, a duplex cabin with comfortable living space, or the stunning Skerryvore Suite.
