Ravenhill was an outlying hill beneath the height of Erebor, the Lonely Mountain. It stood at the end of a ridge of high ground extending southwards from the mountain itself, overlooking the River Running and the valley of Dale.[1] The Dwarves of Erebor built a guard-post on the hill, about five hours march from the Front Gate to the Mountain,[2] and above its chamber for many years lived two intelligent ravens, Carc and his wife. It was they, and the ravens of hill, that gave it its name.[3]

Thorin and Company made their first camp north of the hill as they reached Erebor.[1]
