Macbeth, Duncan, and Thorfinn first cousins.
After going through reems of information (much conflicting) and trying to reach the most likely conclusion, I have arrived at the following, somewhat different than my aforegoing thoughts:
Malcolm II and wife Edith of Ossery had three daughters:
Bethoc/Beatrix (married Grimus Mortimer, Abbot Crinand), mother of Duncan I
Donada (married Finleach aka Finley), mother of Macbeth
Anleta Thora, (married Sigurd II Hlodversson) mother of Thorfinn, Jarl of Orkney
This makes the three all first cousins.
