  • Treasure map II
  • Treasure map III

Treasure map II

The Journeyman’s Nook is located in the snowy wilderness southeast of Winterhold. Once you find it, defeat the bandit residing there and check the bag beside the campfire (screen below) to find the treasure map.

The map will direct you to two towers situated above the water. The treasure will be on the ground beside one of them. There is only one location in the entire Skyrim that fits this description, which is Valtheim Towers located east of Whiterun (screen below).

Head towards the towers, which are guarded by bandits. From the waterfall’s side, locate the towers and find the chest at the bottom of the left one. It contains various random and powerful items. You can either kill the bandits or just loot the valuables and retreat from the location.

Treasure map III

Southwest of Windhelm, you will come across the Riverside Shack. A sabretooth tiger, who has eaten the shack’s owner, will attack you. Defeat the beast and check the corner of the room to find the next treasure map.

The map will guide you to Solitude Lighthouse. Once there, locate the chest between rocks beside the seashore, northeast of the lighthouse.
