Calendar of Scottish Saints – Saint Middan, Bishop


Very little is known of this saint. Some think him to be identical with Saint Madden or Medan, who was honoured at Airlie, in Angus. Near the church of Airlie is a spring called by the name of Saint Medan, and a hillock hard by is known as “Saint Medan’s Knowe.” The bell of the saint was also preserved there till it was sold for old iron during the last century. Ecclesmaldie, now called Inglismaldie, in the Mearns, has also a “Maidie Well,” which may possibly be connected with Saint Middan.
