The Hills of Scary was a range of hills in the north eastern part of the Eastfarthing of the Shire.

It was specifically located south of Dwaling, north of Quarry and Scary, west of the Brandywine, and east of the Brockenbores.[1]


During Sharkey's rule of the Shire in the latter-half of the War of the Ring, a band of rebel Hobbits including Fredegar Bolger hid in the Brockenbores near the Hills of Scary until they were caught by the Ruffians.[2]
