For filming, there as a CGI collage comprising the island. I quote from the IMDB page:  Scenery from Peddocks Island (initial island approach), Acadia National  Park in Maine, Medfield State Hospital in Medfield, MA, and the Rice  Estate at Turner Hill Country Club in Ipswich, MA were combined via CGI  to create the imagery of Shutter Island as a whole. The large  mountainous area of the island seen during the ferry approach was added  in post-production and does not exist, but the decaying brick buildings  on the lowlands are real ruins from Peddocks Island.  The film takes place on Shutter Island.
