Cassencarie Castle  depicting recently ruined 16th century tower. Taken SCA visit April 2013

Situated on Luce Bay is this multi period site. The oldest part is a L-plan tower of the late 16th century distinguishable by its window mouldings.

Unfortunately it is this part of the complex which has tumbled due to years of neglect and the insertion of large window voids in the 19th century.

The rest of the house forms part of a caravan park and serves it as a pub and restaurant.
