Eglarest was the southern of the two Havens of the Falas that lay at the mouth of the River Nenning on the western coasts of Beleriand. The northern haven was called Brithombar.[2] They were founded during the Years of the Trees of the First Age by Círdan. Upon the cape west of Eglarest Finrod had built Barad Nimras.[3] The Havens lasted until they were taken by Morgoth in F.A. 473.[4]

Etymology[edit | edit source]
