The Creel

A Bed and Breakfast in Orkney

Photo - The Creel

Three 3 sea-view room in a superb location, with superb ever-changing, ever-new, and ever-beautiful panoramas of sea, sky, and green headlands.

Situated in the prime position of the waterfront, the Creel overlooks one of Scapa Flow’s beautiful bays in the heart of the village of St. Margaret’s Hope, an unspoilt gem of a town on the Island of South Ronaldsay, which is linked to the Mainland by the extraordinary Churchill Barriers built to protect the Scapa Flow anchorages from submarine attack. The village is a picturesque conservation zone. The hotel itself dates back to the 1850s and has been an inn for most of its existence.

St Margaret’s Hope makes a wonderful place to stay for a tour of Orkney. It is the home port of the Pentland Ferry, the easiest, smoothest, and fastest Orkney car ferry, which berths at a pier less than 2 minutes’ drive away.

The Private House Stay's Guide

Orkney

A short ferry crossing off the North coast gets you to magical islands of the Orkneys - a fertile and spirtual place that contains over 12,000 neolithic ruins, standing stones and burial chambers. The Old Man of Hoy is one of climbing's great landmarks. Scapa Flow was also a huge seabase in the Second World War and the site of the scuttling of the First World War German High Seas Fleet and a great sports diving location. Whether island hopping by ferry or plane, visiting Skara Brae or the Ring of Brodgar, there is much to do in Orkney and its remote location stops too many tourists.
