Hills Castle
Hills Castle
Hills Castle or Hills Tower is a fine 16th century fortalice, although somewhat spoilt here by being covered in scaffolding - presumably for re-harling of the walls. The lower bit to the left is an 18th century addition, but what makes Hills unusual is the survival of the gatehouse into the courtyard on the right.
