    St. Margaret's Cottage is a traditional, sandstone-built cottage. From its commanding position above the village of St. Margaret's Hope there are superb views down to the bay and across the water to Scapa Flow and the islands of Burray, Hunda and Hoy.

    Inside, the accommodation is deceptively grand but with a welcoming and comfortable feel. Your hosts (and owners) are Fred and Barbara Brown and we guarantee you the warmest of Orcadian welcomes. Our families have been in South Ronaldsay for many generations and we are proud of our heritage and our Island.
    We hope you have a wonderful time here in Orkney.

    Guest Accommodation comprises double, twin and single rooms - all with private bathroom facilities (two rooms en-suite and one with large bathroom). All rooms have TV and coffee making facilities.
    The guests' sitting room has Sky TV and there is also private internet access, Via Broadband.

    Breakfasts are served in the dining room with an early breakfast also available (ideal for the return ferry crossing!).
    Boat charters, wildlife guides and transportation can all be arranged - just let us know your personal requirements and we'll organise the rest for you!

    The Village
    St. Margaret's Hope is one of the prettiest villages in the Northern Isles and we have excellent facilities - art galleries and craft shops display some of the finest work from Orkney makers and painters, three well-stocked shops, three pubs serving good beers and food and an award-winning restaurant, 'The Creel'.

    The surrounding countryside has some of the finest scenery in Orkney - unspoilt beaches and crystal-clear water, rock-pools, cliffs and islets. Open heather moorland and meadows have breeding Short-eared Owls and Hen Harriers, while seals, otters, porpoises and whales may all be seen from the clifftops.
