Placed in the garden of the Tingvoll Park Hotell in Steinkjer the remains of this stone shipsetting consists of 38 stones (of originally probably 45).

It's 9 meters at the widest, and must originally have been about 40 meters long.

The area once sported other stone circles, 3 standing stones and several burialmounds according to a map drawn in 1816 by L.D. Klüwer (published in Klüwers Norsk mindesmerker 1823)
