Location: The settlement of the House of Bëor in East Beleriand, between Nan Elmoth and Doriath near the River Celon.
Felagund Bëor gathered all the wandering families and kindreds of his people, and they removed over Gelion, and took up their abode in the lands of Amrod and Amras, upon the east banks of the Celon south of Nan Elmoth, near to the borders of Doriath; and the name of that land thereafter was Estolad, the Encampment. But when after a year had passed Felagund wished to return to his own country, Bëor begged leave to come with him.... The rule of his folk he committed to Baran his elder son; and he did not return again to Estolad.
