Lordehytta cabin at Folarskardet (1620m above sea level) was built around 1880 by Lord Garvagh.
There were two generations of Garvagh lords from Scotland. The eldest son visited Aurland in the 1860’s and found his way up into the mountains, hunting reindeer and building cabins. It was his son who would later build Lordehytta cabin in Folarskardet. Lordehytta is today the oldest cabin on Hallingskarvet, and is used as both a trip destination and emergency shelter. Lord Garvagh published a book in London in 1875 entitled: The Pilgrim Of Scandinavia, which illustrates his love of the mountains and natural beauty in Hol. He died in England in 1915.
