A former Northern Lighthouse Board ship is about to open as a luxury Hotel, in Edinburgh, following a £3.5million development. FINGAL is located in historic Port of Leith close to the iconic Royal Yacht Britannia, and will provide the ultimate in luxury with 23 beautifully styled cabins, many with their own private balcony, each named after Stevenson lighthouses, inspired by Fingal’s rich maritime heritage.
This 237ft long ship will also provide an exciting new events venue for the city. The spectacular double height ballroom (see above) seats 80 guests and features a moveable skylight (large enough to lower a car through).
Head of Hospitality and Events, Andrew Thomson, said: “Fingal is like no other in Scotland. It is a privilege to take this historic ship and create a new, exciting and world-class addition to the Scottish tourism landscape.”
