Saint Ninian (c. 360 – 432)

Saint Ninian (c. 360 – 432) is the earliest known bishop to have visited Scotland. Neither his place and date of birth, nor his early life, are known with any certainty.

The traditional story is that he was born in Brythonic Cumbria, probably Rheged, but travelled to Rome as a young man to study Christianity. There he was made a bishop and given the task of converting the Picts by the Pope, St Siricius.for more click here
