When storms brew, a spellbinding spectacle unfolds before your eyes – these are quite dramatic later in the autumn. Every day of the year, she earns her name: Gullkrona – Golden Crown: most valuable. When you look out to sea from Högland’s observation tower, it is easy to image the sailing ships that sailed here a hundred years ago, the Swedish Navy before them, The Vikings before them ... They could sail past today, nothing on the horizon reveals the fact that we are now in a new millennium.
