Fodor's Expert Review The Creel
Editor's Note: This location is no longer in operation.
This outstanding "restaurant with rooms" on the island of South Ronaldsay sits right on the waterfront of one of Orkney's loveliest harbors at St. Margaret's Hope. The imaginative modern Scottish cuisine uses the freshest Orcadian seafood, seaweed-fed lamb, and locally grown vegetables. The inn's charm lies partly in the fuss-free approach to hospitality that makes everyone feel welcome. Three simple guest rooms overlook the bay. Note that the drive to Kirkwall is a long one, especially in the dark.
