About Quoile Castle

These are the remains of a late 16th-century tower-house, inhabited into the 18thcentury. The south angle has fallen, revealing an interesting cross-section through vaults and floors. The entrance in the north-east wall was protected by a murder-hole. On the ground floor were two chambers, each stone vaulted (showing marks of wicker centring), with many small gun-loops. A straight stair in the wall thickness led from the door to first floor level, and another to the second floor. Both floors had fireplaces. There is access to the ground and first floor levels.
