Any Abandoned house in South/West,similar Ghost Towns in US?

Probably a bit odd post...but had to ask than miss an opportunity.

I have some interest to photograph deserted houses, ships, trucks or other objects etc with some backdrop of valley/mountain (similar to the ghost towns in the mid western US).. in case of Iceland they are perfect for northern light photography but good for me even now...(with some cloudy sky in the backdrop)

I have noted down some of their coordinates and for the reference let me put them here.. the very photogenic Ship in Westfjord Patreksfjördur (65.514992, -23.836328), then another one near Akranes (64.317635, -22.098205) a few Abandoned houses in Reyjkanes Peninsuala (64.006168, -22.318983) and the Dakota airplane in the south (63.4591, -19.366)..

Is there any other points in the Westfjords, Snaefellsness and South ?

There is also a recently published photography book out there I can't find right now, it's in all the bookstores though...

For the airplane you need to hike a bit, the ships are just a short walk away...
