St Oda's Cell

St Medan of Galloway.

gSt Oda's Cell sits in the grounds of the Hermitage under the shelter of giant pines opposite St Adamnan's Cell. In it Sr Margaret and the small furry abbess work at writing and sewing.

Their current project involves turning a dictionary of women saints into a devotional calendar.

During the day the surroundings are green and peaceful but at night it becomes alive with the sounds of the bats, owls, and frogs who call the area around it home.
