The Skull and Bones Red Isle treasure map is something you'll be presented with during one of the early contracts you take on for Scurlock, which tasks you to solve it in order to find Caradec's Bounty. This forms part of the High Seas Heist contract, and depending on your other progress around the seas it could be your first introduction to this type of mission. To get started, you need to examine the clues written on the Caradec's Bounty Map shown below to figure out where to head next:

As you can see, in teenie tiny scrawl, the map teases:

Your job is simple. Kill the bastard and his crew. Succeed and you will be rewarded handsomely.
Travel to Reef Sea, Red Isle; then head to the Royal Burial Ground outpost for your reward.

You'll need to head to the south of the Skull and Bones map near the bottom of the main collections of islands. On the left-hand side is an area called Reef Sea, although you won't see anything called Red Isle as that's the name of the overall area so don't panic. Instead, move to the right until you meet the coastline and here's where you'll find the Royal Burial Ground outpost. 

Head there, and go ashore.

Once on land, it can be a bit of a daunting task trying to find the exact spot for the buried treasure, seeing as the location is littered with crosses and staffs like you can see in the treasure map itself. However, it's actually not too hard to find. 

From where your boat lands on the shore, head up the steps in front of you and slightly to your right. At the top you'll see a big bushy palm plant, and head just to its right. The spot you need is right there and will be marked with a glowing yellow light.

With Caradec's Bounty obtained, you can head back to Scurlock in Skull and Bones to continue the main campaign.
