Blomøyknuten is the highest point in Øygarden kommune. It's not
a hike. It's not even a long walk. It's where kids play. But the knob provides
an excellent view the sea and the mainland. A drive up the island of Sotra is
worth the while anyway. And since you're already there...

From Bergen, follow highway 555 towards Sotra. On Sotra island,
follow highway 561 northbound towards Øygarden/Tjeldstø.
After a while you pass the Rongsundet bridge and the community of
Rong. Great views from here. Continue a little while to the community
of Blomøy. Pass the centre of the community, and look out for
the highest point on the right hand side, above some houses.
The summit is marked as a triangular point. Find a place to park
near the houses.
Walk up a road to the nearest houses and locate a small
trail just before the house furthest away. This trail will
take you to the Blomøyknuten point.
