Scottish Food & Drink Fortnight

Aboard our sister ship Fingal, our crew are always looking for the very best of Scotland’s larder to feature in our seasonal menus. This Scottish Food & Drink Fortnight, the theme is to discover what’s on your doorstep. Who better to feature than a selection of our lovely, local suppliers!

Edinburgh Honey Co
Wake up wonderful from a good night’s sleep to devour a filling breakfast in The Lighthouse Restaurant & Bar. A sweet treat to start the day, Edinburgh Honey Co’s honey is 100% raw and natural. A family company, their beekeeping tradition started with their grandfather in Poland over 60 years ago. This knowledge has been passed down the generations to create this delightful honey.

Perthshire Preserves
What would an Afternoon Tea be without freshly baked scones, matched with a fruity jam! Perthshire Preserves create the delicious jams our crew serve on Fingal. Owners Iain and Kate (pictured below) have been making jams for many years, then established their company in 2010, creating an award-winning jam and chutney business.

Edinburgh Butter Co
Using Scottish cream, The Edinburgh Butter Co follows a traditional method of production, taking the time and care required for a high quality butter. Aboard Fingal, our Galley chefs serve this throughout the day: at breakfast with pastries, to partner scones at Afternoon Tea and at dinner alongside freshly baked rolls.
