A hamlet on the river Snowbourn

A small village that lay among the White Mountains to the south of Edoras, far up the valley of the river Snowbourn. It stood beneath the hidden refuge of Dunharrow, and it was from Dunharrow that it took its name: Dunharrow means 'hill temple' (a reference to its ancient use by the Men of the Mountains) and so Underharrow means 'beneath the temple'.
