Midtre Skagastølstind is one of the peaks constituting Skagastølstindane ("Skagastøl peaks") in the Hurrungane mountain range. The 2,284-metre (7,493 ft) tall mountain lies in the eastern part of the municipality of Luster in Sogn og Fjordane county, Norway. The mountain lies in between Nordre Skagastølstind, Vetle Skagastølstind, and Store Skagastølstind. The mountains Store Styggedalstinden, Jervvasstind, and Sentraltind all lie about 1 to 2 kilometres (0.62 to 1.24 mi) to the east of this mountain. The village of Skjolden lies about 15 kilometres (9.3 mi) to the west.[1]

Name[edit]

The first element is the genitive of the name of the mountain farm Skagastølen and the last element is tind which means "mountain peak". The mountain farm (dairy farm) Skagastølen belongs to the farm Skagen in Luster and stølen is the finite form of støl which means "mountain farm". Skagen is the finite form of skage which means "headland" or "promontory" and the name is equivalent with the famous Skagen in Denmark. The word midtre means "the one in the middle".
