Places in Middle-earth
Hills of Scary
Region: Bree/The Shire
Location: A hilly area in the lowlands of the River Brandywine (Baranduin), found north of the Great East Road in East Farthing of the Shire, and west of the River Baranduin.
Description: "The day after the battle Frodo rode to Michel Delving and released the prisoners from the Lockholes. One of the first that they found was poor Fredegar Bolger, Fatty no longer. He had been taken when the ruffians smoked out a band of rebels that he led from their hidings up in the Brockenbores by the hills of Scary...
"Great stores of goods and food, and beer, were found that had been hidden away by the ruffians in sheds and barns and deserted holes, and especially in the tunnels at Michel Delving and in the old quarries at Scary; so that there was a great deal better cheer that Yule than anyone had hoped for."
From The Return of the King, LoTR Book 6, Ch 9, The Grey Havens
