As described. The east side of the rocky promontory on which the castle stands forms the western side of the harbour, with a modern quay built against it. Although the building is in poor condition, the main threat is posed by structural decay and collapse of the stonework rather than coastal erosion. The castle and its immediate surroundings remain closed to the public.
