Stóra-Drageyri in Skorradalur

This old farm belongs to the Iceland Forest Service and has been slowly decaying since the 1960s.

At first sight the house doesn’t look too bad:

Broken windows are only to be expected:

But then you come to the back and see some real damage:

It wouldn’t have surprised me to see small trees up there:

Neðstibær

Neðstibær is an abandoned farmhouse by the road over Þveráfjall in northern Iceland, between Skagaströnd/Blönduós and Sauðárkrókur.

Each year it gets a little more run-down, while the sheep tiptoe around it and crop the grass.
