As far as the books tell, Skorghijl is owned by the skandians, and is set up for them as a village, with huts for all the crews to sleep in.
It is known that to be a bleak and barren island of black rock, with hardly any vegetation.
It is roughly halfway between Skandia and Gallica and Teutlandt, in the middle of the Stormwhite Sea.
Skandians, on their way back from raiding season, will always stop at skorghijl, along with fellow skirls. It is used as a home while the skandians wait for the winter to end, they do it as the stormwhite is too rough to travel on in winter, to do so would be near suicide.
