Orkney and Shetland Islands Restaurants


The Creel

The Creel Review

This outstanding "restaurant with rooms" with a glowing reputation sits right on the waterfront of one of Orkney's loveliest harbors at St. Margaret's Hope. The imaginative modern Scottish cuisine (the price includes three courses) uses the freshest Orcadian seafood, seaweed-fed lamb, and locally grown vegetables. On the island of South Ronaldsay, the inn's charm lies partly in the fuss-free approach to hospitality that makes everyone, from the local farmer to a visiting business executive, feel welcome. Three simple guest rooms overlook the bay.
