"You know, your father once called Highpoint a keep for the gods. 'What stonework,' he said. 'What craftsmanship.' He wouldn't stop talking about it. If you ask me, I'd say he was envious."
―Ludd Whitehill to Rodrik Forrester[src]

Highpoint is a stone castle situated in the North of Westeros. It is the seat of House Whitehill, staunch vassals of House Bolton.



Highpoint, as it's name suggests, is situated upon a steep hill north of Winterfell. This hill was once covered by a dense ironwood forest, which was stripped bare. The barren hill then became the sigil of House Whitehill. It is at least a thousand years old.
