Outside the gate to the castle(w and out)

You are standing in one of the city commons near the crest of the hill. This commons is particularly interesting, as it is bounded on the west by the Castle of Dol Amroth. The castle dominates the hilltop, a mighty testament to the strength and glory of Belfalas. The gate to the castle is high and wide enough for four mounted soldiers to ride through abreast. The Ship and Silver Swan banner, emblem of the Lord of Dol Amroth, flies from a flagpole jutting out of the castle wall above the gate. Looking through the gate, you see the castle courtyard inside. The smell of the sea and the sounds of sea birds fill the air.
The only obvious exits are west and out.
