Four Skull Lookout is an ancient Nordic ruin found in Skyrim.


Four Skull Lookout is an above ground ruins and lookout point overlooking the Karth River valley. It is a large stone structure with a single room with a domed roof. It is on top of a cliff south of Karthwasten and east of Markarth. Local bandits have set up camp here.

Outside the back door is a pedestal. There is a stone lookout point with a Shrine of Zenithar to the southwest.

It is the objective of one of the bounty quests that can be obtained in Markarth. This is also a part of Destruction Ritual Spell quest.


Destruction Ritual SpellEdit

This is the final location of the pedestals.



  • There is a silver ore vein out back.
  • There is a birds' nest out back tucked under a ledge, which contains a Pine Thrush Egg.
  • It is one of the few ruins in the Reach that is not inhabited with Forsworn (Levelled Bandits replaced them)
