Description

St Mungo, or Kentigern, has long been one of Scotland's favourite saints for the warm, caring personality which shines through the legends.
His mother was a young princess who was cast adrift in a boat by her father. She and her newborn child were rescued by the monk Serf, who brought the boy up in his monastery. Because the boy trotted after him everywhere, Serf gave him the nickname "mungo" meaning "dear one," or "little dog".

When he died in AD 612, Mungo was bishop of Glasgow and much-loved for his holiness and wisdom. His tomb soon became known as a place of miracles and healing.
