General character of the site Bullerö and Langvikssär form part of the outer Schären archipelago 50 km south-east of Stockholm. The protected area encompasses about 1200 rugged islands formed primarily of gneiss and covered with birches, pines and heather, but also featuring small peat bogs. Reedbeds flourish because of the low salinity of the water. In former times the largest islands were under cultivation and inhabited all the year round. 
Vulnerability Water pollution by PCBs and other chemicals; numerous visitors to keep under control: angling and camping are permitted for two days at a time. 
Owner Bullerö is state-owned; eight-ninths of Langvikssär belong to the Stockholm Archipelago Foundation and the remaining one-ninth to the only fisherman living on the island.

Cultural heritage Unlike the other Schären islands, Bullerö and Langviksskär have never been densely populated; the earliest settlers were fishermen cultivating small plots to supplement their main incomes. All the buildings retain their original turn-of-the-century appearance.
