The Most Secluded House Imaginable: Why Is It There?

Off a remote coast of Iceland, there’s one rocky island among dozens in the archipelago. Unlike the other islands though, this island of grassy cliffs is home to a single, solitary house.

Photos of the lonely house have gotten attention on the internet – understandably so, since it looks like something from a medieval fantasy realm.
