A dune landscape of modest dimensions, with dunes up to 8 m high , is found on Sandoy on the sandy beach which separates Lake Sandsvatn from the sea. 31 Gj6gv's. A very characteristic feature of the Faeroese landscape is the hundreds of straight, more or less deep, steep-walled gullies which are called, in Faeroese, gj6gv. Over 800 have been counted on a 1: 20000 map of the archipelago. They are of tectonic origin and are connected with a lamellar zone system that is younder than the intrusion of dykes.

The dwarf bush moor seldom goes above 300 m and occurs on east facing valley slopes. These acquire more precipitation than the west flanks which are in a rain shadow area for the west winds, the dominant wind direction. As well, there is more sunshine on the west flanks. Grass heaths occur in the drier areas and at higher altitudes, both of these types give way to virtually naked rock. ), which is usually rather trustful, and the large Ringed Plover (Charadrius hiaticula) ; even less common, one occasionally can find Snow Bunting (Plectrophenax nivalis) one or two pairs of nesting.

In the lower basalt series, the resistant lava benches are interbedded with less resistant tuff and scoria. The erosion has therefore produced a 'trap country', a vegetation covered gently slope changing with steep basalt benches. The middle basalt series consists of thin lava flows, separated by strongly vesicular zones. The entire series is massive but poorly resistant to erosion and weathering. As these agencies are more active at higher than at lower areas, the removal of eroded material from the higher areas gives rise to characteristic convex slopes in the middle basalt series.
