(6th century),

Scottish bishop. All that can be safely asserted of him is that he was the apostle of western Fife of uncertain date. He is also sometimes claimed with less plausibility as the apostle of the Orkneys. The centre of his cult and probably of his activity was Culross. His Legend is a farrago of wild impossibilities. Feast: 1 July.
