Close by the Selør harbor there are two compasses carved in the rock, one at Kikkerheia and one on Kjepsøy. The compass at Kikkerheia is partly destroyed by fire. The compass at Kjepsøy is more detailed and better preserved. It has been dated back to the 16th century. The name Kjepsøy comes from the old Norwegian word for slave.
