Kalmanstjorn is an abandoned farm, a former estate to the south of Lake Kalmanstjorn, where there are still some ruins reminding of the habitation, where the mansion of Kirkjuhofn stood.  According to a legend the house had 50 doors.  The farm Kalmanstjorn is said to have been an outlying farm from the mansion Kirkjuhofn.  It was a church site and some people claim to be able to see some traces of the cemetery there.  A short distance further south is Sandhofn and still further Sandhofn, which was abandoned in 1828.  Those farms were all abandoned because of earthquakes and sandstorms.
