Ljótsstaðir, a farm where Gunnar Gunn­ars­son (1889–1975), one of Iceland’s greatest authors, was brought up. From 1907–39 he liv­ed in Denmark and wrote in Danish, becoming one of the most pop­ular novelists in Denmark at the time. The farm appears in the first part of his novel Fjallkirkjan (see Road 931, Skriðuklaustur).
