    appāruit illīs quaedam īnsula ex parte septentriōnālī, valdē saxōsa et alta.

    Cliffs on the coast of Suduroy, one of the larger Faroe Islands. Although the west coast of Ireland is famous for its steep cliffs, it has been observed that the Hebrides, Orkneys, and Shetlands mostly have low-lying coastlines and that only the Faroes have islands that are truly "very rocky and high."
