The gatehouse has two massive drum towers which are very impressive.
The castle flourished from 1377 to the 17th century.
It was involved in the Siege of Kildrummy in 1306.
Later the castle was occupied by both Royalists and Roundheads during the English Civil War in 1651.
Near the castle archaeologists found some eirde-houses.
