Tales and Legends

No mountains are in Grímsey and therefore no trolls exist there. But another creature is said to have adapted to this environment which is called “Bakkakarlinn” that is a human like creature that lives along the edges of the coast. Children are told that if they go to close to the edges, this creature might take them.

A tale created in order to scare children from getting to close to dangerous edges and falling into the sea.
