West Beleriand covers the lands of Beleriand to the west of the River Sirion; they were for the most part under the lordship of Finrod Felagund in Nargothrond, and Círdan the Shipwright in the Falas.

Geography

West Beleriand was the region of Beleriand facing Belegaer to the west with the coast of Falas and the havens of Brithombar and Eglarest and the seaward tower of Barad Nimras. To the north the Ered Wethrin separated Hithlum and Nevrast from the rest of Beleriand.

Siding Sirion was the forested stripe of Nivrim, separated from the rest of Doriath by Sirion.

Rivers included Brithon and Nenning and the tributaries to Sirion, Narog (with Ginglith and Ringwil) and Teiglin (with Malduin and other minor rivers). Between Ginglith and Narog was the field of Tumhalad. The Ravines of Teiglin surrounded the Forest of Brethil.

Between Narog and Sirion lay Talath Dirnen, a part of the Realm of Nargothrond with the hill of Amon Rûdh. To that realm also belonged Taur-en-Faroth to the west of Narog.

To the south, Nan Tathren was the small forested area between Narog and Sirion. Further south, the land of Arvernien with the forest of Nimbrethil formed the Bay of Balar, ending to the Cape Balar.
