Oostan[58.8, 44] is a pygmy area made up of three villages: Oostan Nord in the north, Oostan Sor to the west, and Oostan Ost in the south. Oostan is located at the rim of Lost Isles' dormant caldera, high atop the Lost Peak.
- Excludes the sub-areas
The names of the three villages could possibly be derived from Norwegian directional words. Nord means north, sør means south (Oostan Sor lies south of Oostan Nord), and øst means east (Oostan Ost lies east of both villages). This would fit well with the name of the area, as Oostan could be related to the English town Ulverston, which is also known as Oostan, and which is derived from Old Norse.
