Mac Bethad of Rosemarkie

Mac Bethad (fl. 1127 x 1131) is the first recorded High Medieval Bishop of Ross, a See then located at Rosemarkie.

He makes his only historical appearance as "Macbeth Rosmarkensis Episcopus" (i.e. "Mac Bethad, Bishop of Rosemarkie") in a list of witnesses to a charter granted by King David I of Scotland to the Church of Dunfermline, confirming the previous rights of that church. [Sir Archibald Lawrie, "Early Scottish Charters Prior to A.D. 1153", (Glasgow, 1905), no. 74, p. 63.]

The charter is dated by its modern editor to 1128, ["loc. cit."] but is more safely dated to the period between the years 1127 and 1131. [John Dowden, "The Bishops of Scotland", ed. J. Maitland Thomson, (Glasgow, 1912), p. 209.]
