A.D. 663. This was an east country saint who was formerly held in honour at Fetteresso and Drumlithie in The Mearns, and at Premnay in Aberdeenshire. There are also traces of his cultus in Strathmore, Caithness. At Drumlithie is a spring known as Saint Carran’s Well. His fair was formerly held on this day at Anstruther, Fifeshire. Some of these dedications have been, by certain writers, accredited to another saint Kieran. No particulars of Saint Caran’s life are extant.
