We were biking, and found the ruins completely by accident. It was very interesting and peaceful. It was such a nice accidental find, totally enjoyed it.

The site was interesting, but not much to it. There are the partial runes of the house, and a few smaller out buildings, slave quarters and a kitchen. Interesting but maybe 30 minute stop at most.
