This landmass is 1.7 kilometres (5,600 ft) long and 400 metres (1,300 ft) wide, yet it is uninhabited; the only building on it is a lighthouse that was first built in 1902.

This was not always the case, however; as far back as 1226, it is thought to have been used for fishing, growing crops, and transporting goods to the Icelandic mainland.
