Map reference: H785371 (2785, 3371)

This fragmentary castle stands on a rocky outcrop surrounded by beech trees. Only the W wall remains to 3 storeys high.

The large opening at the ground floor was probably a doorway since there are traces of jambs at the bottom. There is a large window recess above this opening showing traces of wicker centering. The castle was vaulted above the first floor, traces of the vault including wicker-marks remain.

There are remains of mural passages at the first and second floors. There may have been a spiral stairway at the NW corner. A curved setting of stones suggests this. There are many loose stones at the site but no traces of other walls.
