Eilenach was one of the seven Warning beacons of Gondor, and the second from Minas Tirith to be lit.

Description and history

It stood on a high summit peak above Drúadan Forest, and its sole purpose was to relay the fire from Amon Dîn to Nardol. Due to the sharpness of the peak, it was incapable of sustaining a large fire but nonetheless fulfilled its purpose.[1]

Shortly before the onset of the Siege of Gondor, Eilenach was, along with the other beacons, lit to signal Rohan for aid.[2]
