The former municipality existed from 1924 until 1964 and it included the area around the Dalsfjorden between Vanylven Municipality in the west and the Kilsfjorden. The area is now a part of Volda Municipality. Villages in the area include Ulvestadbygda (Ulvestad, Lauvstad, and Sætre), Dravlaus, Åmelfot, Steinsvik, and Dalsbygda.[1]
