Far into the Lone-lands...

The Lone-lands (leaving hobbit-lands behind)


'Now they had gone on far into the Lone-lands, where there were no people left, no inns, and the roads grew heavily worse.  Not far ahead were dreary hills, rising higher and higher, dark with trees.  On some of them were old castles with an evil look, as if they had been built by wicked people.  Everything seemed gloomy, for the weather that day had taken a nasty turn'

The Hobbit (J.R.R Tolkien)  Chapter II  Roast Mutton
