The most impressive part of the ruins is the six stories tall David's Tower. Within the east wall of the stout tower are five vaulted chambers, one above the other, built into the thickness of one wall. These mural rooms are just large enough to take a bed, and probably served as housing for visitors. The inner walls and vaults in the tower have collapsed leaving only a thin outer wall. It has required repairs in recent years. The garret and upper works are gone, replaced by an ugly Plexiglas roof that keeps the rain off of the plaster walls, which are in surprisingly good repair. A wine cellar was housed in the basement, reached by a hatch through the floor.
The property is managed by Historic Scotland and there is a small gift shop located in the entrance gate.
