This big boulder of Myrestenen is found near Ganløse Egede between Ganløse and Bastrup - way out in the forest.

Location: Lyngevej 89, 3660 Stenløse - and way out in the forest.

Size: 2 metres high, 4,2  metres wide and 5,7 meters long. Estimate weight 60 tons.

Meaning of the name: Bog-stone after a nearby bog. An old Danish name for bog is "myr". I doubt it have anything to do with "myre" meaning ant!
