Puffins are Lovund's most famous residents.  They reside on the island's rocky northern slope where they have a nice view scooping into the fjords of the distant mainland.  Their backdrop is a mountainous scene, which swirls with mist on chilly days, of which there are many on the cusp of the Arctic Circle where this island sits. The 400 or so people who live here are fishermen, the sons of fishermen, and the main town has a traditional, red walled, white bordered charm.
