Scotland’s only luxury floating hotel, Fingal, is creating room for romance this Valentine’s Day with the launch of a new overnight package for couples to enjoy a ‘dreamy stay’.

In 2022, Fingal captured travellers’ hearts as one of the top 25 most romantic hotels in the UK and Channel Islands, coming in at number 11 on the prestigious Tripadvisor list of most ‘Dreamy stays that couples love’.

Berthed on Edinburgh’s vibrant waterfront, Fingal has also just been crowned one of the top 25 five-star hotels and restaurants in the UK and Northern Ireland by the internationally recognised Automobile Association (AA). The luxury floating hotel has sailed into the AA’s prestigious list of hotels and restaurants for the first time after being awarded the top five-star rating for the hotel and two AA Rosettes for its Lighthouse Restaurant.

Re-launched as a luxury hotel in 2019, the former Northern Lighthouse Board (NLB) tender is owned and operated by the award-winning team at The Royal Yacht Britannia. Fingal is now a world-class foodie destination with all the glamour and style of a superyacht, but with an air of old-world Art Deco luxury ocean liner elegance.

Fingal’s ultimate Valentine’s package includes a private luxury cabin for couples to share a ‘dreamy’ overnight stay, evening dinner, cocktails and breakfast in Fingal’s Lighthouse Restaurant & Bar, as well as a bouquet of fresh flowers and a selection of handmade chocolates created by Fingal’s own Executive Pastry Chef waiting in your cabin on arrival.

Open to non-residents for Afternoon Tea, dinner and cocktails, Fingal’s Lighthouse Restaurant & Bar offers a choice of eight self-contained private dining booths for small pre-booked groups. Fingal’s 23 luxury cabins are each named after Stevenson lighthouses, inspired by Fingal’s rich maritime heritage. The ship is now the ultimate in luxury accommodation and dining with a nautical twist.

An overnight stay on Fingal this Valentine’s Day starts from £540 per night, based on two people sharing a cabin; breakfast, bouquet of flowers on arrival in cabin, chocolates created by Fingal’s Executive Pastry Chef; dinner allowance of £50 per person in The Lighthouse Restaurant & Bar; £15 per person towards cocktails; and is subject to availability.
