Maps of the Faroe Islands?

Anyone know of a decent map of the Faroe Islands that's available (before arriving there)? I don't see anything reasonable on Amazon or other obvious places.

Right now I'm just doing early planning, so I can get by with Google maps and the downloadable map available from the Faroes tourism website, but we will expect to rent a car when we're there (next summer) - and do some hiking - so I'm going to need to find a good map(s) eventually.

Any pointers?

Thanks. Yep, that looks like the one.

And for 35 bucks - yikes. I suppose that'll be a good warmup for high prices found on pretty much everything throughout remote North Atlantic islands. Oh well, supply and demand and all that.... ;)

Rental cars are available but if you need an automatic transmission they aren't plentiful. Also be aware that the Faroes have some unique driving rules regarding right of way and you might want to look for them before your trip. The tunnels between the islands also have tolls.

Thanks, Frank II - don't need/want an automatic, I prefer stick. Yeah, I know about the two-way, single-lane tunnels with turn-outs - sounds like fun. Trip isn't until next July so plenty of time to brush up on such details. :)

Scanmaps is a big Danish map shop. The link is to a search for maps of the Faeroe Islands.

The letter "ø" you see on the page is the Danish word for "island".
