That’s right – the rules for Icelandic and Faroese are pretty similar:
 
<ll> > /dl/ everywhere except in a few loanwords, such as bolli “ball”.
 
<nn> > /dn/ after long vowels and diphthongs, but not after short vowels.

I’ve seen it written that - In  <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Faroese_language> Faroese, pre-occlusion also occurs, as in kallar [ˈkadlaɹ] 'you call, he calls', seinna [ˈsaiːdna] 'latter'.
 
Don’t know if that’s treu or not, as there were no sources, or how that changes things if true.
