A Dwarven defensive keep at the head of the Cillidellan, to the east and north of the lake, Stedden Keep was built well before the Second War of the Races up the headwaters of the Cillidellan. After Stedden Keep the only defensive structure was the Dwarven fortress of Dun Fee Aran. The Dwarves made a strong stand against the Northland army at the Keep. With their forces depleted they were able to hold the keep for only a few days. With the abandonment of the keep, the Northland army destroyed the Stedden Keep. It was not rebuild during Raybur's reconstruction, instead replaces by Capaal.
