Map Reference: J507383 (3507, 3383)

This three-storey tower-house was probably constructed in the late 15th or early 16th century. Less than half the structure survives. The E wall, about 6m long externally, and adjoining fragments of the N and S walls stand to roof level but the western portion of the castle has completely disappeared. There are some indications that there may have been a vault above the ground floor. However it would have been very flat and it is possible that it was never completed.

View from the SE

The tower is built of split-stone rubble. The walls are slightly battered throughout their height and there was an oversailing parapet with some rain-water outlets at the base. The ground floor was lit by double-splayed loops and there are splays on the inside of the loops at the first floor.
