St. Margaret's Hope, South Ronaldsay, KW17 2SN
The Smiddy Museum is a restored blacksmith's Smiddy situated in the village St Margaret's Hope.
The village smithy in St Margaret's Hope, South Ronaldsay, has been turned into the Smiddy Museum and houses a fine display of tools and artefacts, which the blacksmith would have used in his work. Horse harnesses hang from the walls and there are strange-looking pieces of equipment on the floor.
As well as the blacksmith's tools, there is a unique and interesting collection of archives and photographs which show local events, island life and items of interest, for researching local history or genealogy.
