Fantastic castle, nice hike. The castle can be reached by a 45 min walk from where the dirt road starts after leaving the town of Mironcillo. Don't try to drive it with a "normal" car as it won't bring you good. The way is very scenic. It reminded me of California. The castle is in good shape although closed from the public. Very unfortunate but the hike still worths it. You won't meet many fellow tourists on the way. Take plenty of water if climbing in Summer.

Frösö Runestone

Frösöstenen is the northern-most raised runestone in the world and Jämtland's only runestone. It originally stood at the tip of ferry terminal on the sound between the island of Frösön and Östersund. The stone dates to between 1030 and 1050. It has now been relocated to the lawn in front of the local county seat due to the construction of a new bridge, between 1969 and 1971, on the original site.

Frösö runestone inscription means: Austmaðr, Guðfastr's son, had this stone raised and this bridge built and Christianized Jämtland. Ásbjörn built the bridge. Trjónn and Steinn carved these runes.
