The Western Isles referred to the three islands off the coast of Lindon in Middle-earth. The islands were Tol Morwen, Himling, and Tol Fuin.

Tol Fuin was the largest of isles with Tol Morwen and Himling being relatively smaller. Himling and Tol Fuin were relatively close to one another, while Tol Morwen was about one-hundred and fifty miles southwest of the other two islands.[1][2]

History Edit

The Western Isles were not always islands, and were once well-known places in Beleriand before it sunk beneath the waves at the end of the First Age. Tol Morwen was the location of the Stone of the Hapless that marked graves of Morwen Eledhwen, and her son Túrin Turambar. Himling had been Himring, the realm of the eldest of the Sons of Fëanor Maedhros. Tol Fuin was a part of the highlands of Dorthonion that were later renamed Taur-nu-Fuin.

After the War of Wrath and the loss of the Beleriand, the Western Isles were refugee locations where for a time many of the Noldor, Sindarin Elves, and the Edain stayed until departing for the Undying Lands and Númenor. The Western Isles were not known to have ever been inhabited permanently for the rest of the Second Age, the Third Age, and beyond.
