Largashbur, with the longhouse on the left

Largashbur is an accursed Orc stronghold in the Rift beset by giants. It is located southwest of Riften, against the mountains, east of the Dwemer ruin of Avanchnzel. It contains a makeshift altar to Malacath, adorned with Orcish Armor, Orcish Boots, an Orcish Helmet, an Orcish Shield, an Orcish Battleaxe, and lavender. Largashbur is the only one of the four Orc strongholds not to have a mine, and indeed has lent a couple of its working-age Orcs to Narzulbur, since Narzulbur has a mine but a shortage of workers.
