It is past the village of Eidi, you have to drive to Funnigur and after a bend you can see perfectly.

It is part of one of the Nordic legends of the Faroe Islands, starring a giant and his wife witch. The two had been sent from Iceland to steal the Faroe Islands and take them back under the power of their country. The two creatures tied the Eiðiskollur mountain with a huge rope to pull the islands and move them towards Iceland. But a part of the mountain broke and, busy with their work, they did not realize that the first daylight arrived. They were nocturnal creatures, the Sun could transform them into stone … and so it was.

Funningur

On the same road, there is a detour to the village of Funningur. One of those roads as impossible as the Faroese landscapes. After many endless curves you reach the village. In addition the panoramic road continues bordering another fjord, the Funningsfjørður.
