It looks very nice, but it is indeed very, very large. When AI castles get this big, you often encounter the "wall bug" on many maps, where sections of the AI's wall and even moat will be missing, and scattered randomly on the map elsewhere, usually in one of the opposite corners.
I like your design, but you may want to change a few of those armorer's workshops and blacksmith's workshops into tanners or fletchers or something because The Wolf only makes 3 iron mines.
Even if your castle happens to have -5 fear factor, I think 8 blacksmiths is a bit much for him to keep up with.
The outer walls are well manned, but the area surrounding the keep is kind of defenseless, aside from the moat and traps of course. I'd move at least a a couple of archer/crossbowmen spots to the inner sanctum of the castle.
I also suggest you put oil engineers on the roof of the keep, since the campfire area directly in front of it is one of the best places to kill mass amounts of invaders, and also the most effective because of the giant inferno the area will turn into when ignited.
The 8 breweries is a bit much, but I don't really see any harm in it to be honest.
Keep up the good work, I look forward to more of your designs!

just one quick thing,if you could load a image of the map, that would be great. I make a habit of only downloading maps with pictures, just becasue most of the maps that people just make in 5 minutes, don't include an image becasue it takes time.

@dragon ban55: Maybe you should take a look at the category of this file: this is a "modification for Crusader", a new AI castle to be exact. That's not a map, but a new way for Wolf to set up his fortress.
In this category, it is a bit more difficult to upload an image as one can't just place a minimap here. Instead, one has to upload the pictures to a hosting site, for example imageshack, flickr, ... and post the html-code in the file description here.
@bill hammond: Adding pictures would be fine, though. It would help to attract more people to your creations (and thus also lead to more feedback).
