Tol Brandir

Type: Islands & Coasts

Region: Rhovanion/Misty Mtns

Other Names Island of the Tindrock

Location: At the southern end of Nen Hithoel, just before the Falls of Rauros. From a distance it is the central of the three peaks, the two flanking peaks being Amon Hen and Amon Lhaw.

Description: The summit of Tol Brandir was tipped with gold. Frodo looked out eastward and gazed at the tall island. Its sides sprang sheer out of the running water. High up above the tall cliffs were steep slopes upon which trees climbed, mounting one head above another; and above them again were grey faces of inaccessible rock, crowned by a great spire of stone. Many birds were circling about it, but no sign of other living things could be seen.
FotR, Book II, Ch 10, The Breaking of the Fellowship

Aragorn tells the Fellowship "But it is said that no foot of man or beast has ever been set upon Tol Brandir."
FotR, Book II, Ch 9, The Great River
