This is a large rock that was moved by the ice long ago. It is located about 20 km north of  my city. It stands with only a small area on the ground. And of course there are a lot of sagas attached to it. It is said that a giant was throwing it at the Flodafors church built at the side of the map above. He did not like the sound of the church bells. Well, he did not hit the church, the rock landed in the forest.
As the rock stands the way it does there is risk for it to roll away. That is why every visitor has to put a branch up to support it.
