Although the Faroe Islands are part of the Kingdom of Denmark they are not in the European Union.
The 18 rocky islands that make up the Faroe Islands lie in the middle of the North Atlantic, some 602 km west of Norway and 310 km north-west of Scotland - halfway between the Shetland Islands and Iceland.
The most important of the 18 islands are Streymoy, Eysturoy, Vagar, Suouroy, Sandoy, and Borooy.
The Faroes are mainly treeless, have deeply indented coastlines and a number of fjords.
Irish hermits from Scotland hid themselves here until the islands were found by marauding Vikings in the 9th century.
