Windward Ruins interior

There is a central circular area surrounded by an enclosed outer passage. It is guarded by two skeevers and contains an adept-locked chest behind a tilted pillar by the outer wall of the passage. During the Kyne's Sacred Trials quest, you will find a larger-than-life, ghostly skeever within the ruin. During the quest Destruction Ritual Spell, you will need to activate a plinth in the central area to place the book Power of the Elements received from Faralda, then cast a flame spell at the plinth; you will then advance the quest and receive the clue to the second location. There is a snowberry bush in the central area.
