This big boulder of Smørstenen is found in the forest of Grib Skov. I can't recall exactly where, but the forest trail is only around 1500 metres long, and it is real close, as the picture above shows.

Location: Grib Skov, right next to Smørstensvej, Hillerød.
GPS: Around 55.999002, 12.335270

Size: 2 metres high, 2,4 metres wide and 3 meters long.

Meaning of the name: Butter stone.

Material: ?

Origin: ?

Legend: One says that the stone turning when it smells churned butter. To paraphrase a common legend then known 70 stone in Denmark, which was reported to turn around by the smell of freshly baked bread.
Another explanation is that previously sacrificed butter to the stone. Or that in the old days, people put a knob of butter on the stone. When the melted showed you that it was the spring equinox.
Others recount that the name derives from its shape, reminiscent of the triangular stone in the old days used in the churns.
This might be another of Kullemanden's atempts to silence the  church bells of Nødebo. Many years ago he was so angry that he broke all the boulders of Kullaberga and threw them at Nødebo Church to stop the chime. The first roll was too short. The next roll passed west of the church with the killing of Small Gribsø. The third wing of the church and landed at Egelund. Since the fourth throw did not reach beyond the "Tumlingevang", he abandoned his project.
