    This solitary house on an island is ideal for people who hate neighbours

    Hate people? Well, we’ve got the perfect place for you! Off the south coast of Iceland is a group of islands called Vestmannaeyjar. One of those islands is Ellioae, home to a single occupant: a mysterious house that sits by its lonesome with only seabirds as its neighbours.

    300 years ago, five families living in huts lived here. They were able to make a living by raising cattle, fishing, and hunting puffins. After they left, the island became home to the Hunting Association of Iceland in 1953. The hunting association decided to build a cabin for its members to use whenever they would go hunting for puffins.

    Naturally, the remote island has no electricity, internet connection, and pesky neighbors. It has a sauna though, and would make a great place as refuge from the impending zombie apocalypse. Unfortunately, the place is off limits and is only available to the hunting association’s members. If you really want to avoid the crowds, I guess it’s time to apply for an Icelandic hunting license?
