Rauðisandur

Rauðisandur, (“Red sands”) a settled district in an arc between the Skorarhlíðar slopes and the Látrabjarg cliffs, taking its name from the colour of the sand on the coast. A narrow area of flat land, cut across by the Bæjarvaðall lagoon, above which are steep rocky slopes. This is the westernmost township in Iceland and indeed in Europe.
