St Margaret’s Hope Pier

The pier at St Margaret’s Hope was created by Act of Parliament around 1904. At the time South Ronaldsay was separated from the rest of Orkney by Water Sound, and a direct shipping service was essential.

The advent of a new Ro:Ro ferry service in 2001 revitalised the pier and St Margaret’s Hope is now one of the three most important harbours in Orkney. The harbour is managed by a Trust and the Trustees aim to increase the importance of the harbour even further.
