The Hermit Cell
A hermit is a person who lives, to some degree, in seclusion from society or anyone living a life apart from the rest of society, or who simply does not participate in social events as much as is common, regardless of their motivation in doing so.
In Christianity, the term was originally applied to a Christian who lives the eremitic life, an early form or monastic living out of a religious conviction.
This ancient ruin of the Hermit Cell is thought to have been built by a devout hermit, but nobody really knows whether this was actually a hermit's beehive cell or whether it was an enclosure for animals.
The images show the remains of the Hermit’s Cell. Just a stone foundation of what may have been a hut made of timber or turf. An entrance faces southwest to capture the most daylight.
