  • There is a key-only closet; the key can be obtained from Illia's inventory.
  • There is a master-leveled chest in one of the rooms.
  • If the tower is difficult to find, open the world map; on it is the big lake near Riften. There are three bigger islands, forming a triangle. The tower is directly south of the lower-left island. It can also be seen from Largashbur, the Orc Stronghold in the The Rift.
  • While a horse is helpful in climbing up to the back of the dungeon, that isn't recommended, as there is one door that can only be opened from the entrance side.
