Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Strong walking boots/shoes even if you plan not to do a lot of walking, you will benefit from the waterproofing in them.
An umbrella is useless, instead back a couple of waterproof coats, so you can have one drying while you are wearing one, as it will rain.
Although I went in summer I dont think you would really need thermals as the Islands have such mild winters due to the golf stream, so although you are far north it doesnt get too cold. Our tour guide who has lived on the islands for over 50 years said the lowest he has seen is -5 oC in mid winter but usually stays above 0.
Photo Equipment: I would take one standard lens, so capture all the wide shots as well as zoom lens so you can capture the birds on the cliffs without having to disturb them
Miscellaneous: Most things can be bought while out in the Faroe Islands, however might be more expensive, so try to pack eveything you will need

Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Raincoat - frequent rain & drizzles
Water-resistent bottoms - for more serious outdoor activity
Water-resistent hiking shoes - or your feet will be wet when you hike
Comfortable walking shoes - to do lots of walking around town.
Photo Equipment: A good zoom/telephoto - for close-ups of birds.
protective casing - so you can hike without worrying.
Lots of film - so many gorgeous views, you don't want to run out!
Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: nalgene bottle - always useful for hiking, though it's so wet in the Faroes, drinking water isn't asbig of a deal as it is in some places.
Miscellaneous: FAROE ISLANDS - THE BRADT TRAVEL GUIDE
An adventurous stomach - try dried fish, pilot whale steak, sea birds, skerpikjøt, and rullupylse - some of my favorites. (the dried fish is usually a big hit with those who are a little less bold.)

Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Even if you have no plans whatsoever to go walking/hiking you will still need warm clothing and waterproofs. It doesn't get hot in the Faroes, it is rare that the temperature rises above twenty degrees celsius. It doesn't get very cold in the Faroes, the gulf stream moderates the climate. It does rain quite a bit however, it is reckoned that rain will fall on average 290 days a year and when those North Atlantic gales blow it can feel raw. So be sensible and pack a fleece/jumper and waterproof/windproof jacket.

Luggage and bags: It's a good idea to bring a rucksack for daytrips, because theyre easyer to carry around.
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Rain gear is absolutely essential. It rains a lot, and the weather changes continously. It's a good idea to bring an extra sweater to, because it's quite chilly even in the summer.
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Expensive to buy, but how long are you going to stay at this tiny place?
Photo Equipment: Telephoto lens for birdwatching. A Tripod is a verry good idea. Something to keep the equipment dry. I wouldn't bring my wideangle though (I found no use of mine)

Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: You definitely need to have approriate clothing for cool, cold, and soggy weather. There may be some very warm days in the summer, but don't count on them. Also, if you plan to hike, bring water-resistant shoes. The ground is often wet!

Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Like in Iceland, the weather conditions in the Faroe Islands can change very quickly. In fact the weather there is more unpredictable than in Iceland. A thick mist/fog or a rain shower is characteristic for the islands, but it can change to brilliant sunshine in a matter of minutes and then back to rain again. Furthermore the weather is local depending on the wind direction. Weather forecasts are available at tourist information offices. Wear a waterproof rain jacket and a warm sweater as well as a warm hat or cap. Rubber boots or waterproof hiking boots are a must. Basically these are the same clothes you’d be wearing in Iceland.
Photo Equipment: The rich bird life is extraordinary. So be well equipped with photographic gear if you own a assortment of lenses. And don’t forget to bring along binoculars for the view can be splendid on a clear day.
