The tower and eastern range have been restored, and are in use as a dwelling house. Only the lower portion of the western courtyard wall appears to be an original feature.
Visited by OS August 1959 and April 1967.
Fifteenth-century tower-house with 17th-century additions, possibly planned as an L-shaped building but not completed; it incorporates much reused Roman masonry.

NS 7867 7752. Work by Falkirk Museum prior to the installation of a new sewage system revealed a broad ditch, 7.5m wide, under the 17th-century extension to the tower house. The ditch had been deliberately filled in for the construction of this wing, and may have been contemporary with the original structure of 1485.
