North Skybound Watch is an ancient Nordic watchpost situated on the western edge of the mountains in southeastern Whiterun, overlooking the river valley. Riverwood is located due west, Orphan Rock is to the southeast.
North Skybound Watch is a large stone structure that remains mostly intact. There is a single large room with a doorway in front and in back. Exiting through the back door leads to a stone walkway with a pedestal at the end. There is also a short flight of steps down to a door which leads to Skybound Watch Pass. A few skeletons may sometimes be found outside the main entrance.
- The pedestal that has the option to be activated is used in the quest "Destruction Ritual Spell."
