This is the second largest island with the highest mountain. There is a fabulous mountain road between Eiði, in the north-west of the island, and Gjovk, a village where there is a remankable cleft in the rocks forming a relatively sheltered harbour.
There are other delightful roads in the north-east leading to Elduvik and Oyndarfjordur, the site of rocking stones in the sea - the stones being a bit underwhelming but the road and the village doing far more than compensating.
The south of the island is supposedly less dramatic but has a lake near Nes highly recommended for bird watching.
