NOTE: You have a romance option with Ciara during your conversation with her but nothing happens yet.

Stealth Guide: Sneaking into Cashelore

Hop across to the other end of the scaffolding.
Jump down the ledge and follow the ridge to the other side of the southern ringfort. You should see a couple of ladders leading up the wall at the end of the ridge.
Infiltrate Cashelowe through the wall's opening. Eliminate the guard stationed near the opening.
Head towards the tower directly to your left as soon as you climbed up the wall and eliminate the highlighted guard.
Taking the guard out prevents any complications once you head inside the wall later on.
Walk along the wall in the opposite direction after taking out the patrolling guard. Look for a hole with a ladder and eliminate the guard directly underneath.
Eliminate the third guard inside the wall to avoid complications later on.
Look for a giant opening in the wall with a pole sticking out. This should be positioned just beside the southern ringfort's door.
Make sure the guards outside aren't looking directly at your location before swiftly diving into the haystack below.
Spring out of the haystack and quickly assasinate the guard in front of the gate. Bring the body with you towards the gate to avoid being detected.
IMPORTANT: You can pull this off easily with the Assassin Carry skill.
Unbar the gate by breaking the link in the center and open it to begin the assault into Cashelore.
