Rangers of the North
Weathertop is a significant hill in the Eriador region of Middle-earth, the southernmost and highest summit of the Weather Hills.
Overlooking the Great East Road in central Eriador, east of Bree, Weathertop lies about halfway between the Shire and Rivendell. The hill rises a thousand feet above the relatively level lands round about, and with only the lower Weather Hills stretching away northwards, it offers a commanding view in every direction.
Chief of the Weather Hills, Weathertop is located at the heart of the Lone-lands and it is the highest peek for many weeks ride in any direction. Its history is long and fascinating, dating back before the Tower of Amon Sûl that was found already in the Second Age. Now it is home of any prowling creature, goblins, and orcs that happen to outnumber one another; even trolls have been seen here but probably held in capture by others
