The Honeywine empties into Whispering Sound at Oldtown,[1][2] while Blackcrown and Three Towers sit along its northern and southern shores, respectively.[3] The great beacon atop the Hightower guides ships safely into Oldtown's harbor,[4] where a great statue of Lymond Hightower gazes off down Whispering Sound.[2]

History

The Velaryon fleet lingered in Whispering Sound when its commander, Lord Alyn Velaryon, waited for the promised reinforcement from the Redwyne fleet for his expedition to the Iron Islands to deal with the Red Kraken.[4]
