Lindon

Warning: Wikipedia contains spoilers

In the fiction of J. R. R. Tolkien, Lindon is the land beyond the Ered Luin (Blue Mountains) in the northwest of Middle-earth. It is the westernmost land of the continent. The Gulf of Lune[?] divides it into Forlindon (North Lindon) and Harlindon (South Lindon).

Lindon is the last mainland remnant of Beleriand left after the War of Wrath at the end of the First Age, the rest of the land having been broken or submerged by the tumults.

Many of the Elves of Beleriand relocated to Lindon at the beginning of the Second Age, where they were ruled by Gil-galad. They built Mithlond, the Grey Havens, on the Gulf, and many Elves left from there to Valinor. Lindon itself appears mostly as a place where reluctant Elves tarried before departing forever from Middle-Earth.
