The castle seen from roughly the northwest.


This was the first sheela-na-gig we saw with our own eyes. It can be seen high on the southeast wall of a ruined tower house. The castle is in the property of a small farm and the lady was so kind to allow us in her property and show us a way to climb into the tower house. The staircase was very dangerous and the only things I found were bird feathers and broken egg shells on almost every step.
The sheela-na-gig shows a female figure with no legs and with visible ribs and breasts. Her hands are joined as to cover her pubes.
