This island is a gem. On one end of the island is a bird-watching tower and an active monastery (no tours), and on the other end are 800-year old ruins of a monastery with a restaurant, B&B, and gift shop. We explore the ruins, then hunt around for a trail to take us out to the tip of the peninsula.
It takes us a little time to find a trail, and then we are treated to a magnificent hike with beautiful views of the fjord. Finally, we reach the lighthouse. It is the smallest lighthouse I've ever seen, not much taller than me. From the lighthouse, we climb down the rocks to shore below. The geology is very strange, looking like rocks on the surface of another planet.
We enjoy a picnic lunch and some lightsaber duels in the high winds, and then hike back to the gift shop where we buy some fresh vegetables and some unusual carrot jam. The island is very charming – an overnight stay at the bed and breakfast would make for a marvelous experience. A most excellent day!
