Crossing the Firth of Forth in 1123, Alexander I, King of the Scots, was blown off course and sought shelter at Inchcolm Island. Stormbound for three days, he and his retinue were looked after by a hermit, who shared his slender diet of the milk of a single cow, mussels and small fish. Afterwards Alexander vowed to build a monastery on the island, but he died in 1124 before being able to keep his promise. It was left to his brother, David I, to invite Augustinian canons to establish a priory on the island. It was raised to full Abbey status in 1235.
