Timezone and DST on the Faroe Islands

Timezones are always computed by their difference to UTC, the "Universal Time Coordinated". On the Faroe Islands exists only a single tonezone at UTC0. E.g. New York is currently at UTC-4 in Eastern Time, so the time difference between NY and the Faroe Islands is 4 hours.

They have a nationwide clock change from standard time to daylight saving time, where the clocks are switched forward by 1 hour in summer.

The next clock change in Faroe Islands will be on October 30th, 2022 at 2:00 to standard time.

The Faroe Islands have an east-west extent of 0.8 degrees longitude. Given the country's location in Northern Europe, this corresponds to about 40 kilometers. With such a small extent the course of the sun at different positions in the country hardly matters. The position of the sun in the west of the country deviates from that in the east only about 3 minutes. This means the sun rises and sets 3 minutes later in the west than in the east.
