The Stubben comprises two islands close to each other: Lillskär and Storskär, which have served as a base for fishermen since the 16th century.
A wooden daymark, built in the 1850s, is standing on Storskär.
A combined lighthouse and pilot station was built on Lillskär in 1954. Pilot operations ended and the lighthouse was automated in the 1960s.
