It haes ane o Scotland's twa survivin Erse-style roond touers (the ither is at Brechin, Angus; baith are in the care o Historic Environment Scotland). The touer stand 74 ft (23 m) heich, an it is possible tae climb tae the tap, uisin a modren metal spiral staircase (the touer oreeginally haed several firthen floors linkit bi ladders).
