We are situated in the centre of St Margarets Hope village, which is on South Ronaldsay, the southern island of the Orkney archipelago.
Within St Margarets Hope there is the Smiddy Museum (old blacksmiths museum), The Croft Gallery, Hoxa Tapestries and an excellent 9 hole golf course.
South Ronaldsay has many historical sites, from World War II battery emplacements at Hoxa to the 5000 burial site at Tomb of the Eagles.
Orkney also has many things to interest visitors, whether it is diving the naval wrecks, seeing the wonderful scenery and wildlife or visiting the many archeological sites, like Skara Brea. For a more information see Local Interests.
We are 50 yards form the bus station, the local shops, pubs and restaurant.
The hostel has a fully equipped kitchen, a spacious lounge to relax in. We have double rooms, family rooms and single accommodation.
We are only a couple of minutes walk from the Pentland Ferry terminal, and the bus stop for Kirkwall/Stromness is just across the road.
Booking is preferred but is not essential
