Literature DictionaryTolkiens Middle-Earth Dictionary
The region [south-]west of Dor-lómin, beyond Ered Lómin, where Turgon dwelt before his departure to Gondolin. The name, meaning 'Hither Shore', was originally that of all the northwestern coast of Middle-earth (the opposite being Haerast 'the Far Shore', the coast of Aman).

The first homeland of Turgon in Middle-earth.
A mountainous coastal land on the northwestern bounds of Beleriand; the dwelling place of Turgon and his people during the first century of the First Age, before their removal to Gondolin.
There were Sindar living in Nevrast during the Years of the Trees before the First Age. When the Noldor returned to Middle-earth, the native Sindar of this region accepted Turgon as their lord, and the two peoples mingled. Noldor and Sindar alike left their homes in Nevrast when Gondolin was completed. After their passing, Nevrast became an empty land, though the name was still used for the abandoned region.
According to the published Silmarillion, Nevrast originally described the entire western shoreline of Beleriand, distinguishing it (as the Hither, or near, Shore) from Haerast, the distant shore of Aman.
