Knockespock House, from late 16th century. Demolition of the extensive 1889 western quarters has restored some semblance of order to the ensemble. From the north and south the nucleus of two round towers of the original Bishop's residence peep forth while from the north the ordered two storeys over basement of a plain 18th-century house are clear. 'An ongoing puzzle' (IBD Bryce).
