On Hither Shores where mortals are.

Hither Shore was a term used especially by the Elves for the mortal lands of Middle-earth, a reminder of the far distant shores of Aman.[2][3]

In Sindarin of the First Age, it also had a more specific meaning, since it translates into that language as the name Nevrast, a cold seaward region in the northwest of Beleriand.[4]
