The 16th century tower-house is three storeys and an attic in height, with the usual vaulted ground floor. The first floor room in the north-west corner, within the early 17th century extension, contains two mural chambers, one of which extends into the corbelled out rectangular projection shown here. It is a somewhat curious feature - of little functional value one would think, but if it wasn't functional, it must have been decorative, which, round the back of an otherwise severely plain building, seems equally improbable.
