The Squall Gate is a small gate at the entrance to Solitude, which stands just in front of The Storm Gate. It consists of a small gate, tower, and a wall, and is said to be the place where enemies meet their first real resistance.
There is a Haafingar Guard near the gate, who may give directions to join the Imperial Legion. If the Stormcloaks take Solitude during the Civil War, this guard will be replaced by a Stormcloak Soldier.
- Despite being said to be the first real resistance, during "Battle for Solitude" there is not a single Imperial Soldier fighting.
