The enclosure is located on a narrow coastal promontory above the sea that marks part of the defensive circuit. The construction of one or more ramparts placed across the neck of the promontory divide it from the mainland. Old Castle Head Promontory Fort has a rampart and ditch on the north-west side, and square annex" enclosure
