Fingal A 237-foot ship built in 1963, the Fingal is now a luxury floating hotel, docked a short walk from the Royal Yacht Britannia in the Port of Leith. Following a multimillion-dollar refurbishment, the converted boat—once used to service lighthouses—now features 23 sumptuous cabins complete with rain showers, heated floors, smart TVs, and maritime-inspired decor. Some come with private balconies or second levels, while the penthouse suite includes separate living and dining areas. Also on board are decks for stargazing and sipping champagne, an elegant ballroom with a grand staircase, and a panoramic restaurant and bar serving breakfast, afternoon tea, craft cocktails, and dinners of seasonal Scottish fare.
