Irish by birth, Chattan migrated to the Clyde area, founded several churches there, and later the monastery of Kingarth on the Isle of Bute. He was the uncle of Blane, whom he sent to be educated by Comgall of Bangor before succeeding his uncle at Kingarth. Chattan died and was buried in Northern Ireland.
