Around the cairn lies stones that farmers has cleared from the fields, varying from 3 to 11 metres wide (widest on north). The size of the stones from the clearing is much more irregular, and generally smaller than the ones in the cairn.

The stone ring once consisted of 9 stones, but now only 6 remains.
This ring also has a low center stone. Was restored in 1936 by mr Sahlström
