Fort Hraggstad is located in the Haafingar Hold on a snowy peak overlooking the Sea of Ghosts, with a sheer cliff to the north and uneven, slightly forested terrain to the south. The Fort is held by bandits prior to the beginning of Civil War quest. During the Quest it may be occupied by either the Imperial Legion or the Stormcloaks depending on the Dragonborn's allegiance.
If this location is visited prior to the start of the Civil War questline, (i.e. whilst it is occupied by Bandits), there will be a lookout watching the main entrance. It is possible to sneak around to the right and enter through the rear entrance, which doesn't have a gate, and take the Bandits by surprise. You can also sneak in by heading around the right-side (north) of the castle through a hole in the wall where the tower collapsed.
- Fort Hraggstad, Fellhammer, and Kastav are the only military forts to not originally appear in The Elder Scrolls: Arena.
This section contains bugs related to Fort Hraggstad. Before adding a bug to this list, consider the following:
- Sometimes after completing the Imperial quest and being told a garrison of troops will be securing it, the next time the Dragonborn arrives it will be re-populated by bandits. This may be caused if you clear Fort Neugrade, Fort Snowhawk or Fort Sungrad before clearing Fort Hraggstad Because the garrison of troops will secure them instead.
- The fort may be completely empty upon arrival.
