Broddanes

Broddanes is named after the rocks, Broddar, which are located at the very end of Ennisháls, right between Kollafjörður and Bitrufjörður.

The Sagas tell us that the first settler in Broddanes, Broddi is buried right next to the Broddar rocks. The remains of his alleged grave can still be seen there.
