In the books
Battle Island is located within Oldtown. The island sits in the area where the Honeywine widens and empties into Whispering Sound. The Hightower sits atop it. It is unknown how the island came to be named; and some tales claim dragons once roosted on Battle Isle until the first Hightower put an end to them.
