Glirhuin was a Man of Brethil, a seer and harp-player who lived in the Forest of Brethil in the First Age.

He composed a song that said that the Stone of the Hapless would never be defiled by Morgoth nor sink below the sea. Indeed after Beleriand fell beneath the waves still Tol Morwen stood alone above the waters.[2]
