The Windward Ruins are the remains of an abandoned fort. They are located southwest of Dawnstar. The only inhabitants of the ruins are two skeevers. The pedestal towards the end of the ruin is used to advance the quest "Destruction Ritual Spell."
The Guardian Skeever can be found inside Windward Ruins during the first stage of Kyne's Sacred Trials.
