South coast

South coast


This island is connected with Streymoy by a car ferry from near Kirkjubour. It is generally more agricultural and scenically softer than most of the islands, though there are excellent features on the south and east coasts.

As you go into Skopun on the ferry, you can see a very small island to the west of Sandoy. This is Djúpaberg and belongs to the farmers of Kirkjubøur, who use it for grazing. Crossing the island to the southern village of Sandur, there are superb views of the most southerly islands, Skuvoy, beautifully structured Stora Dimun and Litla Dimun with one farm between them and, in the distance the larger island of Suduroy. An unclassified roadleads to the uninhabited but delightful bay of Søltuvik, where we had a walk and were mobbed by arctic terns. On the way back we lunched near puffin cliffs.
