Mánaskál

Mánaskál, a farm where the settler Hólmgöngu–Máni (“Máni of the islet–duels”) is said to have built his farm when he moved from Mánavík on Skagi. He is supposed to be buried in the Mánahaugur mound on Illviðrahnjúkur (969 m) in the Laxárdalur mountains. There are indeed signs of a rock–built mound, but it can supposedly bring bad luck to touch it.
