There is free access at any time to this ruin in a delightful location on a coastal headland. The low and thin wall of the small 12th century inner ward is rather ruinous, and only the base remains of a round tower added on the east in the 13th century, but the square gatehouse is complete. The much larger late 13th century outer ward to the east is fairly complete, with two D-shaped towers and a twin-towered gatehouse which later had its passage blocked up so as to convert it into a self-contained tower house.
