Nolsoy is an island about 20 minutes by ferry east of Thorshavn. It is renowned as the island time forgot, for there is little development, though most of the houses are modern, and almost no traffic. One or two vehicles are used to haul stuff to and from the ferry, but what is the point of car when there is less than a mile of road? There is one small village: here is the main part of it as viewed from the ferry, showing the cluster around the church (locked needless to say), perched immediately above the sea.
East of the church is the harbour, essentially boats pulled up on to the sandy beach inside a protective stone pier, with the modern docking facility for the vehicle-carrying ferry a little further round still. Between the two is a picturesque curve of derelict and semi-redundant warehouses. The photo shows the ferry leaving its quay and heading for open water past the church and old pier.
The rest of the island is uninhabited and given over to sheep and visiting walkers. This photo shows the island behind the village to the north.
Above the ferry quay is a small rocky hill with a collection of ruinous buildings. None, as far as I could see, were domestic; rather were they outbuildings, sheds and the like. The best guidebook asserts they represent desertion of part of the village in the 17th century. This may be so but some of the ruins are certainly recent judging by the concrete blocks etc. among the debris and the state of surviving wood.
