Location

Weathertop is a point of interest within the Weather Hills in the Lone-lands. [31.2S, 36.9W]

This chief of the Weather Hills is located at the heart of the Lone-lands and it is the highest peek for many weeks ride in any direction. Its history is long and fascinating, dating back before the Tower of Amon Sûl that was found already in the Second Age. Now it is home of any prowling creature, goblins, and orcs that happen to outnumber one another; even trolls have been seen here but probably held in capture by others. At the southern summit the observant visitor may find Dewitt the Explorer and his Floid, the mighty steed.

Recently, Gandalf the Grey fought a terrible battle against the Nazgûl here. A few days later Frodo was stabbed by the Witch-king, almost to the death. These epic events took place October 3 and 6, III 3018. After those events the Ranger Candaith was forced to defend Amon Sûl against foes called forth by the fell powers that had twice attacked the hill and twice been driven back.

Lore

The Tower of Amon Sûl was founded by Elendil at the Weathertop in II 3320. It was overthrown by the Witch-king of Angmar in III 1409. The Elvish name is Amon Sûl, but Men name it Weathertop.
Amon Sûl stood near the centre of the ancient North-kingdom of Arnor, and Elendil built a tall tower on its summit to hold the chief palantír of his realm, the largest and strongest of the three owned by the North. In later days, Arnor broke into three smaller kingdoms, and the Tower of Amon Sûl marked the point where the three met. The Tower was destroyed at last by the forces of Angmar, but its palantír was rescued and carried away to Fornost.
At the end of the Third Age, the Tower of Amon Sûl had been a ruin for centuries, but the hill still marked the highest point for many miles in any direction. — lorebook
