Gruoch is said to have flourished 1020-1054.  One flourishes as an adult, so estimate her birth as, say, the year 1005.
Before 1032 Gruoch was married to Gille Coemgáin mac Maíl Brigti, Mormaer of Moray, with whom she had at least one son, Lulach mac Gille Coemgáin, later King of Scots. Gille Coemgáin was killed in 1032, burned in a hall with 50 of his men. The next year one of her male relatives, probably her only brother, was murdered by Malcolm II.

She died about 1041 and is buried at Iona.
Gruoch had one child by her first husband Gille:
