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.
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.
