Well worth the walk

Parked the car opposite the turn off and walked the 2km up the hill. There is a new fenced off area to view the cliffs. We saw the amazimg cliffs and stacks on and off through the mist. The road has recently been resurfaced but is still narrow in places.

Didn't expect these impressively beautiful view when I've visited Suðuroy. Dramatically vertical cliffs. Beautiful scenary. Definitely the most beautiful view in the Faroe Islands. It's worth a visit. You can drive or walk up to the cliffs, just be careful of the edges.

Hidden gem of the Faroes

Suduroy and these cliffs are a hidden gem of the Faroes. Very impressive steep cliffs and easily accessible by car. Visited on September and weather was overall okay.

Spectacular view of the west coast of Suduroy

A nice walk along a small road up to the old radar station.
The grass plain ends in very steep cliffs. Don't go very close to the edge. Keep children and dogs safe.
There is no reason to visit this place if there is fog.

Well worth the short walk and acts of bravery to see. It gives a real sense of the power of the ocean when you see it in action!

Great view if you are brave!

This place, called 'the edges', is a bunch of sea cliffs in the Faroe Islands. You approach from the top and get as close as you dare to the edge, and then you can see crashing blue waves and and dramatic vertical cliffs! One of my favourite stops in Suðuroy...

Absolutely Stunning View
I would absolutely recommend everyone who visits the Faroe Islands to visit this place in Suðuroy (the southernmost island). Be careful not to fall over the edge, and enjoy the fantastic scenery. You stand on the top of a mountain which ends suddenly and turns into a vertical cliff, and you see right down to the braking waves of the North Atlantic more than 200 meters below you. Eggjarnar is the edge of a row of mountains south of the village Vagur in Suduroy, Faroe Islands. A narrow, curvy roads leads all the way up to the edge of the mountain, it is a 15 minutes drive from Vagur. The road stops around 20 meters from the edge. The view is fantastic up there; one can see the vertical cliffs on the west coast of Suduroy. Towards south there is Beinisvord, a 469 meters high vertical sea cliff. Between Beinisvord and Eggjarnar there is Lopranseidi, west of the village Lopra, where a Dutch ship, called Westerbeek, went shipwreck in 1742. A Loran-C station was built on Eggjarnar during World War II. There are still some ruins up there, remains from the war. The Faroe Islands were occupied by Great Britain. The view towards north is also great and shows Skúvanes, Vágseiði and Gjógvaráfjall.
