Really, only to be viewed from a long distance, not worth stopping for. Much better examples around in Iceland for visiting.

It is impressive that these structures still stand today. The concept and application behind the construction is truly and amazing feat, And to see these with the mountains as the back drop is awe inspiring.

Was fascinated by these little hobbit houses! Interesting sight to behold with towering mountains as backdrop!

A short walk from the main road is this small group of turf covered farm buildings, dated back to the 19th century. There is also a tiny turf-covered chapel.

That were used to store hay. Now abandoned but sweet to see how it was in the very old days. Took some fun pics and enjoyed seeing how it use to be.
