This is the southern tip of Heimaey, the main island of the Westman archipelago. This little peninsula on the left of my picture is a very VERY windy place (not the case when I was there).

An importart weather station is located there -Stórhöfði-, inhabited since 1921. It has a wind record registration of 220 km/h, February 3rd 1991, but the meteorologist assures that the wind did reach 240 km/h (67 m/s) - as published in Morgunblaðið Newspaper.
