A Ghost Story from Meðalland district. It was not uncommon for the bodies of those drowned at sea to be washed ashore on the beaches of Meðalland on the south coast. One story goes that a long time ago one such body washed ashore. It was strange; without clothes, covered in hair and had long claws on its fingers and toes. The locals were afraid but as was the custom the body was taken to a nearby farm and a rough coffin made. Then it was buried. Not long after the burial people became aware that the vicinity of the church was haunted.
