Location of the Municipality of Rangárþing ytra
|Time zone||GMT (UTC+0)|
Skarð is a small village and church parish in southwestern Iceland in the Rangárþing ytra municipality (before 2002: Landsveit), Rangárvallasýsla county, and Southern Region, along road 26 (Landvegur), northwest of Hekla.
The present Skarð church was built in 1931. The parish shares a priest with four other church parishes (Árbæjar, Haga, Kálfholts, Marteinstungu) under the name Fellsmúlaprestakall. This parish and church is called "Skarðskirkja á Landi" to disambiguate from other places named Skarð. The original catholic church was devoted to archangel Michael.
