Seaton Castle is a fairly new castle as construction was completed a mere five years ago. Unorthodox in its long but narrow design, the castle occupies a very defensible position on a rocky outcropping that both overlooks Port Seaton and the Salin River’s mouth. A ditch, crossed by an operational drawbridge, separates the West Barbican from the city. Eight round towers adorn its main walls while six smaller towers defend the barbicans, three on each side. The viscount family apartments are located in the Inner Ward while the halls, chapel (multi-denominational), kitchen, and stables, are all located in the Outer Ward. Thirty soldiers (fifteen crossbowmen) stand watch in the castle at all times.
