Saint Serf and Inchkeith

Among the anecdotes of St. Serf, extracted by
Pinkerton from the Chronicles of Winton, a Canon
Regular of St. Andrews who lived in the end
of the 14th or beginning of the isth century,
mention is made of some matters that are evidently
fabulous—that the saint left Rome, and embarking
for Britain, in the sixth century, with a hundred
men, landed on Inchkeith, where he was visited
by St. Adamnan, with whom he went to Fife.
