In ''[[The Fall of Gondolin (chapter)|The Fall of Gondolin]]'' the 'Land of Willows' is located in roughly the same place as in the later geography of the [[legendarium]], but [[Tuor]] visits it before, as well as after, his sojourn in [[Gondolin]]. Its beauty caused Tuor to tarry there longer than [[Ulmo]] had purposed — only leaving when the Vala appeared to him directly and order him to seek Gondolin. Following the sack of the city the refugees came to the Land of Willows and stayed there several years, until Tuor's 'sea-longing' drove them on to the Mouths of Sirion.<ref>{{LT2|III}}</ref>

Yet another detail about this region is given in these early version of the tales: the Land of Willows is said to be the place were [[butterflies]] of all kinds came into the world, and they remained common there during the [[First Age]].<ref>{{LT2|III}}, p. 154</ref>
