The Dove-Cote

The “Hennery,” or Dove-Cote,
was the first structure built on the island.

Standing in what would be the castles courtyard, this tower once housed an elevated water tank which supplied water to the island structures. It was topped with a dove house – where they collected fancy fowl. It was also the first of many towers that were to rise on this and other of the nearby islands.
