The remains of a C17 stronghouse on a plateau within a ringfort lies completely isolated and encircled by a deep ditch, whose almost vertical sides rise above 20 feet or more. There are gunloops near the corners of the lower storey, whilst the upper has fireplaces with tall chimney stacks at each end.
