Four Skull Lookout is an above ground ruins and lookout point overlooking the Karth River valley. It is a large stone structure of a single room with a dome roof. It is on top of a cliff south of Karthwasten and east of Markarth. Local bandits have set up camp here.
Outside the back door is a pedestal. There is a stone lookout point with an Shrine of Zenithar to the southwest.
It is the objective of one of the bounty quests that you can obtain in Markarth. This is also a part of Destruction Ritual Spell quest.
- There is a Silver Ore vein out back.
- There is a Birds' Nest out back tucked under a ledge, which contains a Pine Thrush Egg.
- If you have cleared the lookout before, the bandits do not respawn and that makes it impossible to complete the bounty quest. The quest may be completed by the typing the console command Setstage bq01 100. The loot in the chest respawns normally.
