Western Watchtower is a dilapidated stone fort west of Whiterun. It is situated alongside the main road that runs west from Whiterun. It is used by the Whiterun city guard to watch for any danger to the city that could approach from the west. The entrance to the tower is at the top of the remains of an outer wall of a fort that has fallen into disrepair, in the area between the fallen walls there is a training dummy, and the charred remains of a wooden hut.
Inside the tower, there are two bedrolls and a small table with a lantern. The second floor contains an archery target and a pile of hay while the roof is empty.
After Dragon Rising, four Whiterun Guards are left to guard the tower and keep watch for enemies.
