Puffins at Bjargtangar
Iceland

Bjargtangar is the most Westerly point of Iceland and indeed of Europe, a mere 300 km from Greenland. The sheer cliffs are in fact a continuous rock wall extending for about 14 km, from Bjargtangar in the west to Keflavik in the east.

The cliffs are cut by three valleys. Listed from east they are: Lambahlioarfalur, Geldingsskorardalur and Djupidalur. To the west of Djupidalur is Heionakinn, where the cliff wall rises spectacularly to its highest point 400 metres about sea level. Heionakinn is supposedly the spot left unblessed by Bishop Guomundur the Good; tradition has it that he intended Heionakinn as a dwelling place for an evil spirit said to haunt the cliffs, cutting the ropes of those decending the cliff face.
(Taken from an information sign in the area)
Other sources indicate this is in fact not the most Westerly point of Europe.
