There is a harbour on the west side of the castle and it is thought that the access would have mainly been by sea.
Below the summit are a number of ruined buildings which are thought to have been associated with the castle. On a clear day there are views out to Quinish Point, Ardnamurchan Point, Coll, Rum and the Uists.
