Map of Hithlum (slightly conjectural)1
The misty, grey land held by Fingolfin and his people to the north of Beleriand, fenced by the mountain range of the Ered Wethrin.
The map shown here is largely canonical, except for the ridge of hills that form Hithlum's northern border. The standard Silmarillion map does not show the extreme northern extent of this land, but a sketch map reproduced in volume 11 of The History of Middle-earth shows a low range of hills running in the direction shown.
