Whiterun Hold

Whiterun Hold is a hold in Skyrim, located roughly in the middle of the province.[1]

It borders six of the other eight holds in Skyrim, the exceptions being Winterhold and Haafingar.[2] Giants are often seen traversing the landscape while herding mammoths to grazing areas or back to their camps.[3] Surrounding the capital, Whiterun, are fertile plains dotted with farms that supply the food for much of Skyrim.[1] The other notable settlements in the hold are Rorikstead and Riverwood.
