On this episode of Scran Rosalind takes a trip to the Port of Leith to visit Fingal, a Stevenson Lighthouse yacht which has been converted into a luxury hotel.
The team behind the project have sea-faring experience already having run The Royal Yacht Britannia for the last 25 years. Rosalind was keen to see just how Fingal has secured, and maintained, the 'number one hotel in Edinburgh' spot on TripAdvisor.
Rosalind met Casey Rust, Director of Marketing for both ships, who gave her a tour of this singular hotel and talked about the unique process of converting a yacht into a bespoke hotel.
She also met Executive Chef Mark Alston who told her all about the challenges and opportunities presented by being in charge of multiple galley kitchens.
He shared his experience of cooking for celebrities and royalty as well as how working with their clients is key to achieving their very high standards.
We've also got news of the all new Scran Awards and how to nominate.
We’d love to hear from you for the next season’s episodes.
