The bloody Faroe Islands rated by National Geographic as top unspoiled island destination in the world!

The Faroe Islands in Europe which are internationally infamous for their bloody slaughter of pilot whales and dolphins have been rated by National Geographic's Traveler as top unspoiled island destination in the world, with score 87 out of 100. Here is their rating: http://www.nationalgeographic.com/traveler/features/islandsrated0711/islands.html
