“With all the glamour and style of a superyacht but with an air of old-world Art Deco elegance, we think Fingal has an amazing story to tell. A former Northern Lighthouse Board tender, Fingal underwent a £5 million transformation to become Scotland’s first luxury floating hotel, offering the ultimate in luxury accommodation and dining with a nautical twist.”

Fingal boss Andrew Thomson: “We’re really looking forward to working with Taste Communications as we prepare for another exciting year ahead on board Fingal.

“Fingal has quickly established its world-class reputation as a foodie destination in just 12 months, so we’re keen to build this momentum by taking our unique story to new audiences around the UK and beyond with support from Scotland’s first dedicated food, drink and hospitality agency.”
