'''Halldir's Cairn''' is a [[Caves (Skyrim)|cave]] located in {{Skyrim}}. It is the final resting place of [[Halldir]]. It is found southwest of [[Falkreath (Skyrim)|Falkreath]]. The border between [[Skyrim]] and [[Hammerfell]] lies very close to the cave and can be found if walking the road southwest.
'''Halldir's Cairn''' is a cave found South-west of [[Falkreath (City)|Falkreath]].
 
   
When first entering the cave, the player will notice a column of blue light and three dead bodies around it. On a pedestal near the column is a journal, telling of a ghostly voice compelling the bandits to kill themselves on a blood-soaked rock cairn, as well as a key to the only door going further inside the cave (Key to Halldir’s Crypt). This first room has no enemies and it is filled with numerous mushrooms ([[White Cap]], [[Namira's Rot]], [[Imp Stool]], [[Fly Amanita]], and [[Bleeding Crown]]).
