St Margaret's Hope....
When my visitors from Australia were here we took a trip to St Margaret's Hope. A lovely wee village that reminds me of Cornish coastal villages.
I love the cottages hugging the shore, much like in Stromness.
And this boat was for sale. I wanted to buy it - I miss the old boat on the Graemsay shore.
There are several roads in the "Hope" (or the "Hup") as it is known locally. But the two main roads are Front Road (along the sea-front) and Back Road (back from the sea-front...obviously.....).
Creels piled up along the old pier at the harbour
And one of the main ferries to the Scottish Mainland sails from the village. The "Pentalina" - a catamaran
More "holiday" pictures around Orkney to come. But work and other distractions are conspiring to delay me.....
