This article is about Northern parts of Middle-earth. For the the Northlands of Númenor, see Forostar.

Northlands was a term most commonly used to refer to the regions in the north of Beleriand, including Dorthonion, Dor-lómin and the lands around Angband. After Beleriand fell, "Northlands" was used more broadly for the northern regions of Middle-earth, such as Forodwaith.
