If you do not first speak to Telrav, the occupants are disguised as guards and are non-hostile. You can loot everything in the tower without any of them caring. If you do speak to Telrav and initiate his quest to return him to his camp, all of these "friendly" guards are revealed to be bandits. Killing Telrav unprovoked without initiating the quest results in the guards being hostile when you approach.
The top of the tower gives the player an awe inspiring view of northeast Skyrim. On a clear day, one can see the entire mountain range that surrounds southeastern Skyrim, and to the north one can see further than Windhelm. To the west the view is blocked by the Throat of the World, and Northwind Summit to the east.
