The Orkney Islands exude an image of beautiful hillside and verdant landscape, and St Margaret’s Hope is the epitome of a sleepy, quiet town that tempts many into wandering along its picturesque scenery. Only being a village may suggest a lack of amenities, but St Margaret’s Hope is drenched in fun things to do: a golf course is the perfect way to spend an afternoon, and for a touch of art and culture, an art gallery and museum offer an entertaining experience. Attractions aside, the most common pastime in the village is simply to walk around the scenic walking trails that adorn the mountainside – embark on the adventure with your camera to capture the glorious vistas afforded from the apex of the land.
After a tiring day exploring the slopes and valleys that dominate the horizon, enjoy some quintessentially Scottish cuisine at the award winning restaurant, with seafood being a popular choice. Most choose to spend only a couple of days in the quaint village, but the short stay will live long in the memory.
St Margaret’s Hope is a village on one of the Orkney Islands, an archipelago resting off the north east coast of Scotland. The only ferry route departing the port is to Gills Bay on the north coast of Scotland, connecting passengers with the mainland.
