Hither Shore was a term used especially by the Elves for the mortal lands of Middle-earth, a reminder of the far distant shores of Aman.[1] In First Age Sindarin, it also had a more specific meaning, since it translates into that language as the name Nevrast, a cold seaward region in the northwest of Beleriand.[2]
