Father's Day 2017

If you’re looking for Father’s Day gift ideas in Edinburgh, why not treat your Dad to a day out aboard the Royal Yacht? Spend quality time with Dad discovering five decks and enjoy a fascinating insight into life aboard a Royal Navy ship. From the Engine Room to the Royal Apartments, it's guaranteed to be a great day out with the whole family.

Celebrate in the Royal Deck Tea Room with our special Father’s Day cocktail (recipe below). On Sunday 18 June, the Royal Deck Tea Room will be serving up a Yotties' Cuba Libre alongside all of our classics, including our soups, sandwiches and Bloodhound Beer.

Can’t make it along on Father’s Day? Buy a gift voucher for a future visit and create the Yotties' Cuba Libre for your father at home. A wide range of gifts are also available from our Gift Shop including H.M.Y. Britannia whisky and our new rugby top.

If you really want to impress Dad, why not book an exclusive evening event on board and start your night with luxurious travel thanks to our partners at JetLogic and Rolls Royce.

Why not spend the day in Scotland’s capital? Book a tee time to play at the world’s fourth oldest golf club - Bruntsfield Links Golfing Society. Situated 5 miles west of Britannia, you’ll be able to enjoy golf at one of Scotland’s top 100 courses (Bunkered Magazine) with stunning views over the Firth of Forth.

Alternatively, visit The Scotch Whisky Experience on The Royal Mile for an afternoon of whisky tasting. Their Taste of Scotland tour includes a three-course Scottish food experience in their Amber Restaurant.  You’ll also be able to witness The DIAGEO Claive Vidiz Collection comprising of 3,384 bottles of Scotch whisky, making it a priceless record of whisky history. Everything for the whisky lover!

Happy Father's Day.
