Drangey island

Sheer rock pillar almost 200 meters high, rising from the middle of Skagafjörður. In olden times it was called "the pantry of the people of Skagafjörður", because the locals caught birds and gathered eggs. It is known that some 200,000 birds were caught there one spring. Grettir the Strong and his brother Illugi spent three years in selfimposed exile on Drangey, which can only be ascended at one spot, until they were killed by their enemies. The outline of their refuge can still be seen.
