I'm looking to find a castle that is shaped like a cross from an aerial view. It also sits on a hill surrounded by green grass.

I've tried searching for this castle, in vain, for a week now. Please help me!

Thanks!

on the internet i can find only one castle name associated with the movie:

castle gleigh prison in northern island (don't know if it really exists).

maybe this is the building you mean, at the end of the 19th century it was usual to build prisons in cross form, unfortunately i couldn't find a pic of it, so i am not sure, and also don't associate prisons with hills of green grass.
