St. Donald of Ogilvy, (also known as Donivald or Domhnall), was an eighth-century Scottish saint who lived at Ogilvy, in the former Forfarshire.

Life[edit]

Upon the death of his wife, Donald converted his home into a hermitage where he lived a monastic life with his nine daughters (known as the Nine Maidens or the Holy Nine Virgins). Upon his death they entered a monastery in Abernethy. Churches throughout Scotland were dedicated to the Nine Maidens. Their feast day is 15 July.[1]
