'''Harlond''' was a haven of the [[Elves]] on the southern shores of the [[Gulf of Lune|Gulf of Lhûn]]. It precise positioning is open to debate: in one passage it is seemingly described as the southern part of the [[Grey Havens]],<ref>{{HM|AA}}</ref> but the map that accompanies ''[[The Lord of the Rings]]'' shows it as a small inlet about 150 miles west of [[Mithlond]].<ref>{{FR|Map}}</ref>

It is told that the fleet of [[Eärnur]], arriving in [[Lindon]] during the [[Angmar War]], filled the harbours of Harlond, [[Forlond]], and the [[Grey Havens]].<ref>{{App|Gondor}}</ref>
