Uninhabited islands

Are all of the linked islands inhabited? If not, they probably don't count as destinations needing their own article. - Todd VerBeek 09:39, 26 April 2007 (EDT)

...welllllllllll, not entirely. If it's a place that you could camp or sleep over, I think an uninhabited island might be a destination. --Evan 11:08, 26 April 2007 (EDT)
Well, I did say "probably". My point was that just being a place on the map doesn't make something a destination; you need to be able to write a usable article about it. - Todd VerBeek 16:47, 26 April 2007 (EDT)

Yeah, I see your point. All of the Islands are inhabited except the very small Island Lítla Dímum - Sheep only occupy it. You wouldn’t be able to stay there - it’s simply too small. So I’ll remove it from the article. You can write articles about every other island, even the small ones - these tend to be very popular with tourists, especially Mikines. It’s only inhabited by about 15 people, but gets 8000 visitors per year. Soppho 16:46, 6 May 2007 (EDT)

Actually, you can write about Lítla Dímum. Apparently tourist trips are organized where poeple ascent the island. Not for people with vertigo.Soppho 10:44, 13 May 2007 (EDT)
