Losgar

Ted Nasmith - The Burning of the Ships

Losgar was a place at the mouth of the Firth of Drengist, in the cold lands northwest of Beleriand. It was here that Fëanor landed at the beginning of the First Age, and gave the order to burn the stolen ships of the Teleri in which he had sailed to Middle-earth. His half-brother Fingolfin, trapped in Aman by this deed, was forced to march across the deadly Helcaraxë with his people to reach the Hither Lands.[1]
