Giant's Tooth is an island off the coast of Skyrim, located in the Sea of Ghosts northeast of Winterhold. It is reachable by ferry from Dawnstar.[1]

The island was known for the temperate environments found within Iron Tusk Cave. The humid environments within this cave allowed for the survival of a grove of Ironwood trees.[1] By the Fourth Era this once common tree was rendered nearly extinct in Skyrim, no longer being found at such northern latitudes.[2]

Circa 4E 201, the island was populated by giants. They had set up a camp outside Iron Tusk Cave, killing the fishermen who were already encamped there.[1] According to some accounts, the Last Dragonborn journeyed to the island that year to obtain some Ironwood Fruit for use in a cure for a man in an advanced state of ataxia.[3] However, it is uncertain if the Dragonborn ever stepped foot on the island.[4]
