I have just been reading up on The Faroe Islands

This group of islands group is located between the Norwegian Sea and the North Atlantic Ocean, approximately halfway between Scotland and Iceland. The Faroe Islands are a part of the Kingdom of Denmark, along with Denmark proper and Greenland.

The islands have been an autonomous province of Denmark since 1948. Over the years, the Faroese have been granted control of most matters. Some areas still remain the responsibility of Denmark, such as military defence, foreign affairs and law.

Anyone visited these fairly remote Islands? They do appear to be worth a visit.

In fact, in 2007, National Geographic (National Geographic Traveler and National Geographic Center for Sustainable Destinations), conducted a comprehensive survey of 111 island communities throughout the world. Surprisingly, the Faroe Islands came out on top as the most appealing destination in the world.

That does look beautiful. I'd love to hear a report from people who have been there.

Sounds interesting and certainly more than just curiosity value although I can think of a few other candidates for the most appealing island destination?
