Location: A coastal village at the mouths of the Rivers Gilrain and Serni.
Description: "‘One day of light we rode, and then came the day without dawn, and still we rode on, and Ciril and Ringló we crossed; and on the third day we came to Linhir above the mouth of Gilrain. And there men of Lamedon contested the fords with fell folk of Umbar and Harad who had sailed up the river. But defenders and foes alike gave up the battle and fled when we came, crying out that the King of the Dead was upon them."
From The Return of the King, LoTR Book 5, Ch 9, The Last Debate
