Merenost is a landmark within Meluinen in The North Downs. [15.2S, 43.2W]

In the southern reaches of Meluinen, at the shore of lake Nen Harn, this once was a thriving town known as Ost Ardúlin. Possibly commerce with Bree-folk and even the Lone-lands took place here using boats; and yet today it is possible to travel by the eastern shore of Nen Harn to reach Far Chetwood and the Weather Hills beyond. Here is one of the Founding Stones of Arthedain's Five Towns located.
