... explore Landeyjahofn Harbour, a man-made harbour that facilities these sailings and it is a sight to behold. It is constructed of rock lined channels, bordered by a deep grey sandy beach.

Descending down upon the next campsite proves slightly tricky, such is the muddy terrain. Rich took a big slide, made all the more confusing owing to his trainers being affixed to the back of his bag.
We get to the bottom of a particularly slippery hill, and decide to have lunch in the shadow of a large rock. We all agree that the conditions make this one of the most miserable lunches that we've ever ...
