If you carry on round to the east, you get a better idea of the fortifications of the old castle - the keep and the round towers that overlooked the dry moat. The two sides of the keep that fell down have been half re-built to stabilise the rest of the building.

Behind the keep, you can see part of the renaissance gallery.
