This cog-joint hut from Lærdal is unique. It is a small guardsmen’s hut which originally was located on top of the mountain of Vetanosi between Lærdalsøyri and Fodnes, about 11oo meters above sea level.

The hut has a door in one of the end walls and big peepholes with a view in three directions. Along the walls there are fixed dirt benches.
