Lamba (from Old Norse Lamb-hagi, meaning “lamb outfield”), is a small village in the bottom of the inlet Lambavík on the East coast of Eysturoy, Faroe Islands.

There are similarly named places, Lamba in Shetland and Lambay in Ireland.

The houses in Lamba are spread down through the valley following the road on its way from the bottom of the valley down to the small harbour.

There is a huge rock in the harbour. Nobody wants to remove it because it is said to be inhabited by ‘huldufólk’, a race of elfs or faries that people used to believe in. They are said to be fierce if disturbed.
