- "You'll take a ship to raid the fishing villages of the Stony Shore."
- ―Balon to Theon Greyjoy
In the books
In the A Song of Ice and Fire novels, the Stony Shore is the same.
In the second novel, it is luridly described how the Ironborn, led by Theon, have pillaged it: the bodies have been looted and mutilated. Of the fishing village, nothing has remained but cold ashes that stank when it rained. The men have been put to the sword, all but a handful that Theon had allowed to flee to bring the word to Torrhen's Square. Their wives and daughters have been claimed for salt wives, those who were young enough and fair. The crones and the ugly ones have simply been raped and killed, or taken for thralls if they had useful skills and did not seem likely to cause trouble.
As news about the sack of the Stony Shore reach Torrhen's Square, Leobald Tallhart sends there a force to deal with the ironborn, but it is ambushed and destroyed by the ironborn.
In the fifth novel, many villagers of the Stony Shore, who have fled the ironborn, join Stannis after he liberates Deepwood Motte.
