A directional signboard points north to the marked path up to the highest point of the island, the cairn at Ramsberget, 149 m asl. In the cairn there is a guest book, where you may write your name.

In Fonno farming is still a way of life, and both Aberdeen Angus, horses and an old brand of sheep may be seen.
