Like many of the small lights in the Stockholm Archipelago, this one proved particularly difficult to identify.  In fact it lies of the tipe of a small, unnamed island on the north west side of the main channel that passes down the northwest side of the island of Yxlan.  It is a typical, small sector light, its design being almost identical to similar lights in the Oslofjord in Norway.
