Hello

It's a documentary about Crusades.
Someone is talking about a crusader's castle, Belvoire.
And he says,
"This one, Belvoire, is 600 yards above the ground.
So you've got a tremendous view."

600 yards is almost 550 meters.
Were really castles so high or there
is something I don't get here?

Thanks
