History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
The castle consists of a pair of enclosures with an oval shaped inner ward within a stone curtain wall. One tower remains, with scant evidence of a second tower. Within the enclosure are foundations of other ruined buildings, including a later 18th century barn.
The outer enclosure measures roughly 60 metres by 50 metres, and it butts against the churchyard to the south. In the north-west corner is a ruined dovecote.
