English Risin og Kellingin

Risin og Kellingin (Risin and Kellingin) are two sea stacks just off the northern coast of the island of Eysturoy in the Faroe Islands close to the town of Eiði. The name Risin og Kellingin means The Giant and the Witch (or Hag) and relates to an old legend about their origins. The Giant (Risin) is the 71m stack further from the coast, and the witch (Kellingin) is the 68m pointed stack nearer land, standing with her legs apart.

Risin og Kellingin (/rísin o čedlindžin/ česky: Obr a Čarodějnice) jsou dva skalní sloupy tyčící se v Norském moři u severního cípu ostrova Eysturoy. Nacházejí se asi 2 km od faerské obce Eiði. Risi (Obr) je vysoký 71 m a Kelling (Čarodejnice; blíže k pevnině) 68 m. Podle legendy jde o obra a čarodějnici, kteří chtěli Faerské ostrovy odtáhnout k Islandu, ale nestihli to do rána a tak zkameněli.

German Risin und Kellingin

Risin og Kellingin [riːsɪn oː ʧɛd̥lɪnʤɪn] (färöisch: „der Riese und das Weib“) sind zwei große Steinsäulen etwa 2 km nördlich von Eiði vor der Nordküste Eysturoys auf den Färöern im Nordatlantik.

Die beiden Brandungspfeiler sind das bekannteste Naturdenkmal der Färöer. Vor der Steilküste an der Nordküste Eysturoys wirken die beiden Basaltsäulen beinahe zierlich, Risin ist aber 71 m und Kellingin 69 m hoch. Die Klippe davor, also das "Festland", mit dem Berg Eiðiskollur, ist jedoch bis zu 352 m hoch.

Um die beiden Klippen rankt sich eine Sage, die in diversen Versionen von jedem Färinger erzählt werden kann.
