Lumphanan is thought to be the site of the Battle of Lumphanan of 1057 AD, when Malcolm III of Scotland defeated Macbeth of Scotland. Macbeth was mortally wounded after retreating with his men over the Cairnamounth Pass to take his last stand at the Battle of Lumphanan. There is a prophecy that foretells he was wounded at Lumphanan and died at Scone, 60 miles to the south, some days later.
