The tower was refaced outside in \later medieval times, probably in the late 15th century, concealing what is supposed to be a 12th-century tower. In the SW corner of the tower is a vice or spiral staircase (not seen, but on the plan in Kirk, 1960, pl. 1); the entrance to the stair is now from outside. There is a blocked doorway inside, but its shape and age could not be ascertained.
