Lepistepao boulder’s perimeter is 29 meters. It is of granite which only comes in the
shape of boulders in Estonia. Stones carried here in the Ice Age add the feeling of
mystery to the island which has a strange gap in its history. Man was here already in the
IV millennium BC but all the signs of him disappear for thousand years and the island of
rare yew-trees and ivy of Atlantic climate lives in secrecy.
