SMR No.: KE104A001036-
Monument Type: Clochan
Cell F, to the south-east of Cell E, is built of moderately sized stones. It measures 2.98m by 2.75m, with the corners defined up to about 60cm above the lintel, after which it becomes circular. A stone with a circular opening completes the dome; it is unclear whether this is an original feature. There are three cupboards in the walls and projecting stone pegs. The floor is irregularly paved and includes some upright slabs that define a raised section on three sides, which may have been where the monks slept.
