    That place looks amazing, whilst you are there does it feel like someone is watching you kind of erie.

    Yes it is a eerie vibe going there I can promise you. The only sounds you hear is screams from the raven,the wind and the splashing of the Fjord against the rocks. You sometimes hear the small whales making noise when they are surfacing and thats a very ghostly sound , but the most scary sound is the one that you really do not want to hear,its the rocks falling from a several hundred meter tall cliff just above the site
