This forced co-operation in the face of the Roman invaders developed over time. During the height of the Hyborian Age, there were grisly tales of the hostile Picts, and what happened to explorers or traders.

The Gaels themselves recorded their descent through Picts book in the Lebor Gabala, written in the eleventh century AD. Nothing as good as this is found between Portmahomack and Rome. The peoples of these lands merged together to become Scots.

None of these ideas prove to hold out very well in light of what we do know however, although there may be good reasons Picts book why they came about. He also makes mention that Columba kept to the "wrong" date of Easter, marking him as a Celtic Christian this being the big rift between the Roman and the Celtic churches and it does seem that the southern Picts kept to the Roman calendar.
