Rubha Sgor nam Ban Naomha (cliff of the holy women) Relics of what appears to have been a hermitage or offshoot of the Keill monastery lying undisturbed on a grassy ledge, reached only by a treacherous path on Canna's southern cliffs. Described as a Celtic nunnery or cashel, this oval enclosure is believed to have been occupied from the 7th century until the Reformation. Evidence survives of an intriguing water drainage system.
