Volunruud is a Nordic ruin. It is the burial place of Kvenel the Tongue, an ancient Nord hero who now haunts it. A copy of the skill book Mace Etiquette can be found inside as well.
Its location is marked on the Dragonborn's map by Astrid (unless it is found through exploration). Arngeir may also point out the location as part of tracking down the word walls for the shout Aura Whisper.
