A topographic survey was carried out as part of a wider programme of survey aiming to characterise the buried archaeological environment across the island. The survey provided a detailed contour map of the island and immediate surroundings, in addition to an outline survey of the extant castle structures. The survey also allowed a detailed plan to be drawn up of the castle defences which survive as earthwork features and have been previously planned only in sketch form. <1>
