The tower, built in the late 14th century, was surrounded by a curtain wall with four round artillery towers. Excavations in 2015 found medieval pottery imported from France, fine window glass, and a carved stone shot-hole.

Loch Ore was drained in 1792 with the cutting of a large channel, but originally the castle had stood on an island.
