Good Hotel Guide Review
In shipshape order, this luxury floating hotel aboard a revamped former Northern Lighthouse supply ship is berthed in a working dock in Edinburgh’s trendy Leith district. Once serving Scottish islands, the now-luxury liner serves up cocktails and refined dining before guests drift off to sleep in decadent berths. All curving wood, thick carpets and glossy brass, the Art Deco interiors are glamorous. Porthole-lined cabins have a huge bed draped in a custom-woven throw; bathrobes, a rain shower, underfloor heating. First-class cabins open on to the deck; those on the starboard side have the best views. In the evening, you might dine on Orkney scallops followed by roe deer; at breakfast, haggis and black pudding complete the full Scottish.
