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. Here is also a good view of The Fitjar islands +  the municipality of Austevoll to the north, Fitjar and Stord to the south and Bømlo to the west. In Fonno farming is still a way of life, and both Aberdeen Angus, horses and an old brand of sheep may be seen.
