Fort Farragut (also known as Farragut Keep) is a ruined military fort located on the foothills of the Valus Mountains northeast of Cheydinhal, in the Nibenay Basin region of Cyrodiil.

During the Alliance War of 2E 582, Farragut was an expansive and strategically important keep. It had its own farm, mine and lumbermill, and was heavily fortified. It was initially located within the territory held by the Ebonheart Pact, and its main function was the defense of the Elder Scroll of Ghartok, which was held in a temple to the northeast. The keep changed hands many times over the course of the war.[1]

The fort was abandoned by the Imperial Legion during the relatively peaceful Third Era.[2] By the time of the Oblivion Crisis, Fort Farragut was no more than a ruin. It had been taken as a lair by Lucien Lachance, a Speaker for the Black Hand of the Dark Brotherhood who administered the nearby Cheydinhal sanctuary. As such, it was infested with undead skeletal guardians in service to the Brotherhood. Lachance was forced to flee the ruins in 3E 433 after he was framed as a traitor.[3]
