Drying shack in Vatnsfjörður

Open daily from 8 - 18

In the Westfjords there are large areas of excellent massive stones which were widely used for making the stone walls of turf houses.  Drying shack is a good example of this. It is one of the largest and best houses of its kind in the country, and is thought to have been built around 1880. Open daily from 8 - 18.
