How To Find Treasure Map III

To find Treasure Map III you will find it easiest to fast travel or take one of the various stable carts in Skryim to the Eastmarch Hold capital city of Windhelm. From there, look on your world map to find the river that travels south from Windhelm and follow it until you locate the Riverside Shack primary location as seen on the map below. It will be right against the river as seen from the picture to the right.

One at the shack, you will have to fight a single Bear if you have not cleared out this location already within the past 30 in-game days, so make sure you are prepared if your character is still low level. Upon entering the shack, the left corner of the house will hold a chest that you can loot next to a fireplace. Just pop this baby open to retrieve Treasure Map III, which when viewed, will show the treasure's location by a drawn image of Solitude Lighthouse.

How To Find Treasure Chest III

To reach the treasure chest associated with Treasure Map II of The Great Skyrim Treasure Hunt, you should travel to Katla's Farm, which are the official stables of the capital city of Solitude. If you already have unlocked Solitude as a fast travel location, you can do that, then just head right outside of the city to find the farm. The second way to get to this location quickly, is to use one of the travelling wagons from another stable you have uncovered (there is one right outside of Whiterun) and pay a small amount of gold to be taken directly here (choose Solitude as your destination).

From Katla's Farm, take the right path as seen in the first image to the right, which takes you underneath solitude and around to the northeast of the capital city. You will pass some other locations along your way, such as the Dainty Sload, but sticking to the road will bring you eventually to the lighthouse which you can see in the second picture to the right (use the thumbnails and click to enlarge).

Once at the lighthouse itself, head around to the northeast side of the plot of land it sits on, and turn to view the building whilst standing in the water to find the treasure chest nestled in some rocks by the coast that surrounds it. Check the additional pictures to the right for more detailed views of its exact location along with a view of the local map. Enjoy your loot.
