The Lord of the Rings Online Lorebook has been updated with an entry on Girdley Island, a former outpost of the Dunedain, and currently a popular fishing spot for local Hobbits.

Settled in the midst of the Brandywine River lies the small but steep Girdley Island, a popular excursion spot for Brandybucks on holiday. This tall island cannot be missed by those interested in taking a small break or looking for a scenic fishing spot while travelling the course of the Brandywine River.

The details are as below:

Landmark: Girdley Island

In the midst of the Brandywine River, between the North Bridgefields and the Brandy Hills, lies a small but steep island. In the early days of Arnor, the Dunedain used this island as a beacon-hill, but it was abandoned when the hobbits came to dwell here. Later, a member of the Brandybuck family rowed out to the island and discovered it was a particularly excellent spot for fishing.

Girdley Island, as it has come to be called, has become a popular excursion for Brandybucks on holiday (for they among hobbits are the least afraid of water). They have built two small piers on the island, providing ample room for fishing hobbits, or anyone wishing to take a break from their adventures with LOTRO#DY#s fishing system.

Girdley Island is a location fleshed out by the developers at Turbine for The Lord of the Rings Online: Shadows of Angmar. Players following the course of the Brandywine cannot miss the tall island guarding the passage to the North.
