Great image but it's not the Eyrie. It's the Vale of Arryn, or really it's probably the High Road on the way to the Vale of Arryn. I'd have to rewatch the episode. The Eyrie specifically refers to the Arryn's "castle" shown here

The chapters concerning the Vale and the Eyrie in A Game of Thrones and A Feast for Crows are some of Martin’s best descriptive writing. Reading the parts where Catelyn rides up to the Eyrie really fill you with foreboding and puts you there on the ascent to Sky, such amazing language. And Sansa’s time there as Alayne really makes you feel like Winter is coming!! Also Mya Stone is one of my favorite badass characters!!

Eh, give me ten good men and some climbing spikes and I'll impregnate the bitch.

When I was there last summer they had roped this area off. 2 years ago it was ok to walk there.

Wow, do I ever feel smart knowing what the "Þ" sounds. (Suck it mom, I learnt shit on this "stupid site I waste my time on that doesn't even make any sense")

Looks like Rohan as well, from the Two Towers.

Being a location scout for a major fantasy production must be fun as hell.

"Who would pass the bloody gate?" "THE BLOODY HOUND"
14 Jan 2018 00:26 - +19
Isn't this also the fault that separates American and Eurasian tectonic plates? Not the entire thing, but this is part of it
14 Jan 2018 00:42 - +16
That isn't the Eyrie, it's the Bloody Gate.

You mean the Bloody Gate?
14 Jan 2018 00:10 - +10
Iceland really seems like a must-see country.

This is where Arya laughs when she hears about her aunt, right?

★☆☆☆☆ No moon door.

I thought of that scene in LOTR: Two Towers where the Uruk-hai are shown carrying merry and pippin across Rohan
14 Jan 2018 01:32 - +5
So much of GoT was filmed in Iceland. I took a trip around the ring road and it felt like every stop I took was a set from that show. It really did feel like a fantasy land.

I think I walked through here in Goat MMO Simulator

Þingvellir is a stunning place, and also extremely interesting if you have an interest in history. Unfortunately, it is also Iceland's third most popular tourist attraction.
14 Jan 2018 00:30 - +3
It’s also a location on the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, where two of Earth’s tectonic plates meet. Here, the North American plate is moving away from the Eurasian Plate.
13 Jan 2018 23:57 - +3
That’s gorgeous isn’t it? It must be such an experience to film that show? One of my aims this year is to spend less time travelling in North America and more in the UK and EU. I’m hoping to get to Iceland and Ireland to see some of the filming locations.
14 Jan 2018 01:10 - +3
That is actually the high road that leads up to the bloody gate the Eyrie is the actual castle
14 Jan 2018 00:01 - +3
Great spot for an ambush!
14 Jan 2018 01:50 - +3
Dunno if anyone wrote this but that's actually the North American plate and the Eurasian plate sticking out of the ground.
14 Jan 2018 00:51 - +3
Was actually really underwhelmed when I went to Þingvellir. Like it was pretty nice, but barely memorable, more just a little tourist attraction close to Reykjavik for people that don't have time to explore the rest of Iceland. Didn't even click that a GoT area was filmed there.

There waz a post before that showed this same image and that it was in Iceland and these are where the two great tectonic plates meet.
14 Jan 2018 00:18 - +2
This looks like a great place for an ambush.

"The bloody hound"
14 Jan 2018 00:39 - +2
I took a road trip around Iceland and as I was driving through Þingvellir National Park, I saw a sign for a parking lot. Since I had time, I decided to stop, and there was a little path leading through a gate, and then a [climb down]( to what you see in the photo. It was awesome to unexpectedly come across something this cool, and if you keep going down the path you'll reach a series of [small waterfalls.](
14 Jan 2018 00:01 - +2
This is not the Eyrie.
14 Jan 2018 00:39 - +2
This is the path to the bloody gate yes?
14 Jan 2018 02:33 - +2
Here are some of my favorite pics from my visit to this same place!
14 Jan 2018 01:23 - +2
I went snorkelling here last week!
13 Jan 2018 23:51 - +2
This more reminds me of the "Man-Flesh" scene from LotR
14 Jan 2018 00:01 - +2
The blood gate scene.

Looks like the outcrop from the start of the two towers as they enter the gap of Rohan.

The bloody gate!

Went there this past October. Beautiful site. Great spot for a picnic and photography
14 Jan 2018 00:29 - +1
Reminds me of the ending of The Witcher 3: Hearts of Stone with O'Dimm. You know, the point where you hear Shani.

I thought I did. Maybe my memory is slipping but I thought there was a boardwalk or something.

"If you take this gate, you do it on this road, three men abreast, and get slaughtered like goats"

This isn't the Eyrie, this is the Bloody Gate.
