Battle of Stracathro

The Battle of Stracathro, also known as the Battle of Inchbare, took place on 16 April 1130 about 3 miles north of Brechin, Scotland, near the River North Esk. Óengus of Moray and Máel Coluim mac Alaxandair invaded Scotland with 5000 warriors according to the Anglo-Norman chronicler Orderic Vitalis. The forces loyal to David I of Scotland under Edward, Constable of Scotland met and defeated the invading army. Óengus of Moray was killed along with some 4000 of the Moravians. [1]
