The ship stops a few miles short of the town and you walk the rest of the way.
You arrive on the outskirts of the City of Farhole.
Farholde overview map

Standing garrison ~1000 fighting men.
Primary resources: Salt mines, farming, and fishing.
The Balentyne is about 3-4 miles west from Farhole along the coast.
Most of the city itself is outside its wall and only the most prosperous citizen live inside the walls of the town. As such, there is no gate to prevent you from entering until you try to get into the inner city.
You spot groups of guards milling about patrolling the roads but they don't seem too concerned with you only giving you the occasional glances and a few stares as you do stand out a little bit. That said the town does see the occasional groups of adventurers passing by before going into the dangerous lands to the north to look for ancient ruins or treasures as many such places (like the keep you recently acquired) do remain still. So they likely assume you are another such group.
