Skálar is a desolate village on the eastern part of Langanes. In the year 1895 it was a trading and fishing port, started by Þorsteinn Jónsson. There were indications of a village and significant fishing boat activity in the early parts of the 20th century. 117 individuals were registered there 1924 in addition to temporary workers, when people from different parts of the country sought places on fishing boats at Skálar, even from the Faroe Islands. Around 50-60 large rowboats were run from Skálar during the peak years. Most of the remains of this trading and fishing port are now gone, except some foundations and an old graveyard. South of Skálar is Skálabjarg (Skálarcliff), a fowling cliff, about 130 m.
