This article describes places of interest in Skyrim that are not marked on your map, are not represented by icons on your compass, and aren't directly related to any quests. Some of the places on this list do not have official names or titles, in which case unofficial names have been used to describe the places.

Bandit Camps and Bandit Ambushes[edit]

Caravan Remains and Shipwrecks[edit]

  • On the side of the road southeast of Dragon Bridge is a caravan loaded with crates, rugs, and a knapsack. Next to it are the corpses of a horse, a Nord man, and a Redguard woman, the latter carrying the Merchant's Journal. Falmer arrows stuck in the horse, other Falmer arrows around the location, and a Falmer ear suggest a Falmer attack, possibly related to the nearby Chillwind Depths. (map)
  • South of The Lady Stone is a shipwreck beneath the waters of Lake Ilinalta. The shipwreck contains a chest and a leveled weapon. (map)
  • Northeast of the Wreck of the Winter War are the sparse remains of ship. Among the oars and wood are three barrels. A short distance to the north is a birds' nest with a pine thrush egg. (map)
  • East of Knifepoint Ridge and west of the Evergreen Woods dragon mound, there are remnants of a caravan loaded with crates, rugs, and a chest. Next to it are the corpses of a horse and two burned humanoids. (map)

Creature Lairs[edit]


  • Northwest of the Western Watchtower lies a ruined shack. There is a hidden chest under some broken floorboards. If you have Fall of the Space Core, Vol 1 installed, the Space Core will crash-land in this shack. (map)
  • Northeast of Ustengrav and north of Hjaalmarch Stormcloak Camp, there is a ruined, burning shack. Fire continuously burns the previous occupant and remaining furniture. (map)
  • In a valley south of Forelhost there is another burning shack where fire continuously burns the previous occupant and remaining furniture. A tome of Conjure Flame Atronach can be found here, implying that a magic-related accident may have caused the fire. (map)
  • With Fishing installed, there is a hut on the coast west of Dawnstar which contains a bed, various furniture, fishing supplies, and other supplies. (map)

Hunter's Camps[edit]

Warlock Altars[edit]

Smaller Places of Interest[edit]

A tattered flag and an unfortunate soul
  • In the mountains almost due east of Ragnvald, between it and Bthardamz, a dead Orc bandit can be found draped over a novice-locked chest containing minor loot. A random one-handed weapon is beside it, and another one is carried by the Orc. Two dead wolves next to him hint at his cause of death. (map)
  • East of Haemar's Shame, on the east side of the mountain pass between Helgen and the western lands of the Rift, a pile of stones marks a steep, narrow path heading east from the road up through a small notch in the rock walls of the pass. A quicksilver ore deposit and a copy of the Alteration skill book Daughter of the Niben can be found at the end of this path. (map)
  • On an island west of Broken Oar Grotto there is a flag on a pole, at the base of which is an unlootable skeleton. There are also two gold ore veins on the island. (map) ESO's developers have stated that this island appears in ESO as Kyne's Aegis.
  • West-northwest of Haemar's Shame and east of Falkreath Stormcloak Camp is an overhanging rock face. Underneath lies a skeleton with a coin purse, along with a few animal bones. There are two snowberry bushes here as well. (map)
  • Due west of Graywinter Watch, on a spit of land sticking out into the middle of the river, is a novice-locked chest hidden among some driftwood. (map)
  • Up along the mountainside due east of Wolfskull Cave and due south of the Steed Stone is a dead female bandit with two leveled potions and a sack of food, right next to a tree. To find them, walk along the road east from the cave until you come to a broken tree trunk on the left; she is above that. Just past this is the stump of a tree which marks a place where you can climb high enough to jump up to the ledge she is on. (map)
  • East of Bruca's Leap Redoubt and southwest of Dragon Bridge Overlook at the bottom of the middle waterfall is an apprentice-locked dungeon boss chest. It's near a fallen tree crossing the river. (map)
  • Southeast of Angarvunde and northwest of Avanchnzel is a lean-to sheltering an apprentice-locked strongbox, two lockpicks, and two leveled potions (healing and invisibility). Two canis roots grow next to it. (map)
  • Northwest of Orotheim on the river shore in a tiny alcove is a lootable skeleton next to a novice-locked common chest. (map)
  • Southwest, next to Orphan Rock is a lootable skeleton, helm, and coin purse in a hollow fallen tree. Mora tapinella grows on the tree. (map)
  • North of North Brittleshin Pass in the valley leading to it is an apprentice-locked strongbox in a hollow fallen tree. (map)
  • North of North Brittleshin Pass just on the other side of the road is an apprentice-locked strongbox inside a circle of small dead trees and bloodied grasses. (map)
  • Northeast of Windhelm and south of Snow Veil Sanctum is a coin bag sitting on the Lockpicking skill book The Wolf Queen, v1. (map)
  • Southeast of the wreck of The Pride of Tel Vos on an island is a helm inside the trunk of a hollow fallen tree along with the Heavy Armor skill book Chimarvamidium. (map)
  • Northeast of Ivarstead and southwest of Darkwater Crossing on the southern shore of a river is a dungeon chest. That section of the river has a keyhole shape and is at the base of a waterfall almost due south of and very close to the location of Aevar Stone-Singer (as described above). (map)
  • West of Redoran's Retreat and due south of Greenspring Hollow is a rock pile with an iron helm in the mountain flowers at the base. (map)
