A huge castle with waterfall crenulated, double layered walls, and a big area for buildings and/or improvements to the defenses. The object here is to let you use your imagination to finish the castle, because i'm not good at filling the castle, i'm just good at making crazy defense systems.
My friend and I are having a competition to see who can build a better defense castle, so please submit your ideas or just rate/comment on this castle. I'm always looking for ways to improve
I can confirm the PNGer does not make a proper minimap from this. Most unusual.
You could take a screenshot in-game and select-crop the minimap from that. Then use the update button to upload the new minimap graphic.

Wrong section. This would belong to the Stronghold Crusader: Castle Builders or Eyecandy and Landscapes category.

@ericgolf: I think it should be in SHC --> skirmishes. As you can see, there are 2 other keeps (right top and right bottom) on the map.
@cjensen93: Interesting design.
But if you want an "ultimate defense", just try adding a stripe of high plateau around your castle and place some stone or iron at the edges. The high plateau will be impassable for any enemy and if you want to cross it, you can just build walls with stairs on the stone/iron to get to the other side (don't place the high plateau too far from your keep!).
Once any enemy approaches, just delete the stairs.
To get a height-advantage against hostile units, you could also set your whole castle on high plateau and put a great canyon between you and your enemies. Again, place stone/iron at the edges to get across with walls.
Warning: The stone/iron below a tile of wall/stairs will disappear, so rocks will appear on the edge of the plateau once you delete the walls there, so make sure to create many spots with stone/iron at the plateau-edge in the editor in order to avoid trapping yourself while playing!
Edit: I just downloaded it and it definitely is a skirmish map.
