The Drunkard's Tower is one of the three remaining towers of Moat Cailin, the others being the Gatehouse Tower and the Children's Tower.


The Drunkard's Tower is so named because of its great lean. It stands in the bog where the south and west walls once met. The tower is covered in green moss.[1]
