Tarnost was a location in Gondor, on the northern foothills, between the river Gilrain to the east and Dol Amroth to the west. To the north was the river Ringló. The location is not mentioned in The Lord of the Rings.
 Other versions of the Legendarium
Tarnost does not appear in the close-up map of Gondor in The Return of the King. The first reference is in The War of the Ring: In the Western map section there is a dot visible in square Q12 at the northern tip of the hills south of the Ringló, and the text states that it had a penciled note calling it Tarnost. The second reference appears in Sauron Defeated: In a manuscript Tolkien stated that "From Erech a road ran by [the] sea, skirting in a loop the hills of Tarnost, and so to Ethir Anduin and the Lebennin.".
