Kjenstag Ruins is an ancient Nordic ruin found in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. It is located east of Morthal and has one chest with minor leveled loot.


Ghost of KjenstagEdit

After one spends some time there, a ghost will appear between the times of 8:00 pm and 4:00 am, who will lead the Dragonborn a short distance away to a small tomb being robbed by a pair of bandits. The tomb contains a dead draugr, a piece of leveled jewelry, an iron shield, and a weak leveled enchanted weapon.

It is recommended to wait outside of the ruins rather than inside of them. After 8:00 pm, go into the ruins and the ghost should be located there. If the ghost does not appear, however, the Dragonborn can shout at the middle of the ruins to fix this.


  • One can get a full set of Ancient Nord Armor by killing the ghost while it runs towards the bandits. This can be done before entering Whiterun for the first time. The Dragonborn can be as low as level 7 when getting this armorset.
