Gartnait of Kinneddar
Stories about him appear in the readings of his feast (8 November) in Aberdeen Breviary. His name strongly suggests that he was Pictish in origin, though later legends have him (in common with many others) being a migrant to Scotland from Ireland. His ethnicity is given as both Pictish and Gaelic here, therefore.
Kinneddar, near Lossiemouth (NJ2269). A large quantity of Pictish and early Christian sculpture survives here, including portions of a tomb-shrine (Macquarrie, 2012, 365).
