The Whispering Cairn

The Whispering Cairn lies upriver from Daggerford, among the southernmost peaks of the Forlorn Hills, south of the Delimbiyr Route. It takes a full day (8 hours) to make the hike from Daggerford.

The Cairn lies near an abandoned iron mine that went dry about 50 years ago. The deed expired a few years later when the mine owner died. Since then the Cairn was forgotten, its yawning entrance overgrown with weeds and choked with debris. It was rediscovered by a curious teenager a decade ago, the cairn has since been a sort of community secret held by Daggerford’s youth, who dare each other to disappear inside to prove their bravery. Occasionally, when the wind is just right, haunting, almost magical tones emerge from the depths of the forlorn tomb. Those who know the location call it the Whispering Cairn.
