IIRC, the icelandic banks are covered by their own guarantee scheme, which is similar to the FSA one. Same goes for Irish banks. Although some of them are set up so that they offer accounts to UK people under a UK-registered offshoot, which is covered by the FSA £35k rule.
edited to add: I think it's the FSCS, not the FSA. See www.fscs.org.uk
...if you press it, they will come.
