The village of Hyllestad is the administrative center of the municipality of Hyllestad in Sogn & Fjordane.
The production of millstones in Hyllestad started over 1,000 years ago, and used to be a major industry employing up to 1000 people. Millstones were exported to danish and baltic areas and the western islands. Many of the crosses to be seen along the coast are made of mill stone from Hyllestad, including the crosses in Eivindvik and Korssund. The park offers nature trails that visualise the ancient of the history of the industry, with debris og broken product as well as half-carved stones still not separated from the rock surface. Guided tours in the summer.
The majestic Lihesten is one of the most prominent mountains on the coast of Norway. There are several marked routes to the peak, over 714 metres above sea level, with views both straight out to the open sea and inwards over the fjords. Lihesten also has a number of good fishing lakes.
