These creatures are encountered within this location:


The Barrow-downs west of Bree were once a haven for the Rangers of Cardolan, until a plague swept across Middle-earth and destroyed the last remnant of those Dúnedain. After the Rangers of Cardolan perished, the Witch-king sent fell spirits out of Angmar and Rhudaur to inhabit the remains of the dead buried beneath the mounds, giving rise to the Barrow-wights. Since then, the Barrow-downs have had an evil name as a place of terror.

"A few places within the Barrow-downs, such as Othrongroth and Ost Gorthad, are known as places of the greatest dread. Another of these terrible places is Haudh Iarchith. Once the clan-barrow of a great and wealthy family, it has now become a den of Angmar’s Dead. The hunters of Bree seek to drive the evil from this place, but few among even them have the courage to face the wights of Haudh Iarchith." — Lorebook



Historical note: Haudh Iarchith served as the public dungeon in Bree-land for the reputation system introduced to Lotro after the game’s release. Players seeking to improve their standing with the hunters of Bree had to spend much time among the wights of Haudh Iarchith... lorebook
With the advent of F2P, Haudh Iarchith was broken into a dozen barrows throughout the northern and southern Barrow-downs, with quests starting at level 20:
