Prospector's Shack is an unmarked location found in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.


It is a small shack near a waterfall. Two burnt corpses are evidence that a recent dragon attack has occurred. The dragon peak Ancient's Ascent is not far from here, indicating the dragon there came down to terrorize the prospectors.

There's a chest, a silver necklace on the end table, a skill book, and a Note to the Authorities that helps explain what may have happened here.

Notable items[]



  • Even if Dragon Rising has not been completed, the shack will still be in this state, despite dragons not appearing in Skyrim yet.
