Margaret's Hope, St.

   MARGARET'S HOPE, ST., a village, in the parish of St. Peter, island of South Ronaldshay, South Isles of Orkney; containing 260 inhabitants. This is a considerable place in the north of the island, having a safe and pleasant roadstead opening into Water sound, which separates the island from that of Burray. It is an excellent fishing-station, and the inhabitants are chiefly engaged in taking and curing cod, ling, and berrings.
