OS 6" map, (1938)
The remains of Abergairn Castle, a small tower-house, erected in 1614, comprise a rectangular main building surviving to 4ft maximum height, with a round tower at its NW angle, 10ft maximum height. The small size of the structure suggests that it was a hunting lodge of three or four storeys with garret.
