Látrabjarg in the Westfjords is a grand bird paradies. The cliffs are mulitple kilometers long and really tall. We visited the tip of it in strong wind, summer 2009.
Here is a series of pictures from there.

It is really hard to believe that they can cling onto that rock face, even in the adverse winds and storms. And they sit, they nest, they sleep, they raise their young ones.

The white stuff on the rock is bird droppings. You can see where everyone lives very easily.
