In South Ronaldsay near Burwick where the John 'O' Groats ferry arrives you have The Tomb Of The Eagles. Taking the A961 we now move north to St Margaret's Hope where we have the new nine hole golf course (across the road from which we find the the providers of this Website, Bankburn House B and B), plus a bowling green and tennis courts. Other interests in St Margaret's Hope include the Smiddy Museum, and Hoxa Tapestry which is part of the craft trail. There are various places to stay, from the back packers' hostel to The Murray Arms Hotel , Serves high quality food all day. This is also where the Pentland ferry arrives from Gills Bay in the North of Scotland. We now move further north on the A961 where on the right at the junction with the B9044 we come to the Orkney Marine-Life Aquarium.
