Portrait of a castle

Kilcrea castle

Ground floor entrance to the Castle

Murder hole in the lobby of the ground floor

Vaulted roof of the 2nd and 3rd floor

The door to the great hall of the castle at the top floor

One of the lovely windows of the great hall

The garderobe or toilet of the castle, wooden seats would  have been over these holes

The wall walk of the castle, notice the spade like shape of the wall walk slabs, these were shaped with an inbuilt funnel to allow rain water run off the wall walk

Currently Im working on an illustration of a late medieval tower house castle, I took the chance to pop over to my favourite castle again, Kilcrea and took a more thorough wonder around, examining it in detail for illustration.
