The Moonshae Isles are a group of islands in the Trackless Sea, in the west of Faerûn. They are modeled after Wales and Scotland. The islands form a roughly circular archipelago with the Sea of Moonshae in the centre. They lie roughly 400 miles (644 km) west of the region of Amn and to the southwest of the Sword Coast. The Moonshaes are ruled by the High Queen Alicia Kendrick, who rules from the capital city of Caer Callidyrr on Alaron. But this title could be disputed since the rise in 1375 of Karador and the queen self-proclamation of the leShay High Lady Ordalf.
The isles were described in FR2, Moonshae published in 1987 by TSR, Inc. The Moonshae Isles are the setting for Darkwalker on Moonshae and the Moonshae trilogy as a whole. They have been the geographic location of multiple works of fiction and game adventure modules.

On the Gulliby Isles where the Pooh-pooh smiles,
And the Rumbletum bunders roar.”
