Barntown Castle



Map Reference: T001216 (3001, 1216)



This small four-storey tower-house is vaulted over the ground floor. The entrance, near the north end of the east wall, is protected by a machicolation. The lobby is ruinous but there is evidence of a murder-hole. The vault has been destroyed. A spiral stairway in the SE corner gave access to the upper levels but it is now destroyed.
