Kilton and Kotlin can be found easily at the northeast of the Lookout Landing. The coordinates are 1090, 1143, 0021. When you are at these coordinates, look around you, and you will find a colorful hot air balloon, and the brothers will be standing right next to it. Then hand over a Bubbul Gem to them, and a quest will be initiated.

The quest isn’t difficult; you just need to hit the frog with an arrow and pick up the gem. Then give it to Koltin, and he will give you a Bokoblin Mask. After that, Kotlin will go on a journey, so you must find him again to get more rewards by trading the gems. You don’t have to rush the search for him as after 9 pm you can find him, by chance.
