Skyrim Guide - All Dragon Shrines Locations

Here are the locations of every Dragon Shrine in Skyrim, just in case you're desperate to fight a dragon one-on-one.

Skyrim Dragon Shrines represent locations where you can always be sure to find a dragon, come rain, wind, or shine. Dragons provide a fiery challenge for even the most experienced Elder Scrolls veteran, but leave behind some fairly nice bonuses in the wake of their demise. In this Skyrim Dragon Shrine location guide we’ll give you all the info you need.

If this guide on Skyrim Dragon Shrine locations wasn't what you were after, then be sure to head over to our Skyrim guides walkthrough hub, containing information on how to download and install the best Skyrim mods, as well as how to find every Standing Stone scattered throughout the game.

Skyrim Dragon Shrines Locations Guide

In this guide, we'll be detailing the location of every Skyrim Dragon Shrine in the vast open world, where you can always be certain to find a dragon, as well as a Word Wall. These mysterious Word Walls will grant the player one word of a Shout, and we'll be listing the Words of the Shouts that you can expect to find at each individual Dragon Shrine.

Ancient's Ascent Location Guide

The Ancient's Ascent Dragon Shrine.

Ancient's Ascent is located directly east of Falkreath, but it won't be entirely easy to reach, being located on top of a mountain. Once you do eventually reach it however, you can expect to find a Word Wall with one word of the Animal Allegiance Shout there.

Autumnwatch Tower Location Guide

The location of Autumnwatch Tower.

Autumnwatch Tower isn't too hard to find, as you can reach this Dragon Shrine by travelling south from the start of the stairs leading to the Throat of the World, or you can travel west of Riften. The Word Wall located at Autumnwatch Tower will give you one word of the Marked for Death Shout.

Bonestrewn Crest Location Guide

Here's where you can find Bonestrewn Crest.

Mount Anthor Location Guide

Here's the location of Mount Anthor.

Mount Anthor, another Dragon Shrine location in Skyrim, is located high in the mountains just to the south and slightly west of Winterhold. It'll be a tough journey to get there, but you'll be rewarded with one word of the Ice Form Shout when you do.

Here's where you can find Shearpoint.

Shearpoint is located high in the mountains east of Whiterun, and is home to not only a dragon, but the Dragon Priest Krosis as well. Once you've dealt with both of these formidable enemies, head to the Word Wall to get all three words for the Throw Voice Shout.
