“Cosy and Comfortable”

The Noust is right on the water at St Margaret's Hope. It is cosy, clean and tidy. There is one room downstairs with kitchen on one side and a bedroom and bathroom upstairs. Only complaint was I couldn't get the Wi-Fi to work.
If you are doing things in the southern part of the Orkneys the location is great. If you plan to spend more time in the northern parts you might find the distance to St Margaret's Hope a little inconvenient.

“A wonderful place”
Reviewed 27 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We stayed here for two weeks and absolutely loved it. The cottage is exactly as described on TA. Very well equipped, very clean and a magnificent location by the sea. We would willingly have stayed longer if we had had the time. Close to local well stocked Post Office and pub plus ferry to mainland. Fish and chip van stops almost outside on a Saturday evening. brilliant!

“Pictures don't do it justice”
Reviewed 20 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Fantastic location. Beautifully appointed cottage with all mod cons. All fittings and furnishing appeared to be new. All equipment we needed to for our stay. Set in the picturesque village of St Margarets Hope right on the water front. I would totally recommend this place to stay. If I return to the Orkneys I will rebook it.
