Hsaarik Head is a headland located at the extreme northern tip of Skyrim's Broken Cape, where the city of Winterhold is built upon.[1] According to tradition, it is where the last fleet from Atmora, under the command of Ysgramor, made landfall in Tamriel during the late Merethic Era.[2][3] Some believed that the resting place of Yngol, the son of Ysgramor, was located far below the rocky face of Hsaarik Head.[4][nb 1]
