In the park of Belmont, there is a tumulus called "Belliduff," which tradition gives as the spot where McDuff slew Macbeth; and about a mile distant, stands a large whinstone nodule, or block of twenty tons weight, called Macbeth's stone. In all probability there has been fighting near these apparently sepulchral monuments; but it is more probable that Macbeth was slain at Lumphanan in the Mearns.
From p234 of 'The New Statistical Account of Scotland' v10 (Perth) 1845.
