Barad Nimras

Type: Fortresses, Towers, Defenses

Region: Beleriand & North

Meaning: white horn tower

Location: A watch-tower built by Finrod west of Eglarest, next to the Sea in Beleriand.

Description:

[The] havens of Brithombar and Eglarest were built anew.... Upon the cape west of Eglarest Finrod raised the tower of Barad Nimras to watch the western sea, though needlessly, as it proved; for at no time ever did Morgoth essay to build ships or to make war by sea.

The Silmarillion, Quenta Silmarillion, Ch 14, Of Beleriand and Its Realms

Then the Havens were laid in ruin, and the tower of Barad Nimras cast down....
