Map of Mithlond
The road shown here running eastward from Mithlond is documented (it was the same road that ran through the Shire and on across Eriador to Rivendell). However, west of Michel Delving, its exact course is unknown, and so the road marked on this map is somewhat speculative.

The Elvish name of the Grey Havens of Círdan the Shipwright, at the eastern end of the Gulf of Lhûn.
