UK: Scotland’s first luxury static floating hotel is set to open in 2018

The former Northern Lighthouse Board (NLB) tender, MV Fingal, will be converted into a 23 bedroom hotel.

The boat will be berthed permanently at the Prince of Wales Dock in Edinburgh's port of Leith.

The property will feature 23 individually designed cabins named after Stevenson lighthouses. The 237ft long ship will also house a double height sky-lit ballroom, able to seat 80 guests.

The development project will be managed by the Pedley Group, a new company formed by Alan Pedley and Stephen Flanagan. Pedley has been responsible for manufacturing and installing over 180,000 hotel rooms in 61 countries for hotel groups including Hyatt, IHG, Hilton, and Marriott.
