The Carrock

Carrock was a stony eyot in the upper reaches of the River Anduin, to the north of the Old Ford a few miles west of Beorn's farmstead.


The stairs had been built by Beorn who sometimes would be seen climbing to the top in the form of a bear to look at the Moon or the Misty Mountains. During their journey to the Lonely Mountain, Thorin and Company were housed there overnight by the Eagles before they went to see Beorn.[1]

Gandalf states that the steps from the base of the rock to the flat top were made by Beorn and that "Carrock" is Beorn's name for it.[2]


The word Carrock is somewhat of a linguistical joke on Tolkien's part; in Anglo-Saxon carr means "rock" and in Welsh, carreg also means "rock, stone".[citation needed]
