Balintore is one of three seaside villages on this northern stretch of the Moray Firth coastline - Hilton, Balintore, and Shandwick are known collectively as the Seaboard Villages. There is evidence of settlement in the area since ancient times with Pictish Stones and sculptures on display. Balintore has a large charming stone harbour, a spectacular sandy beach, two shops, post office, pharmacy, hotel and newly refurbished village hall which includes a cafe. Activities include fishing, sailing and coastal walks. Local employment has long been based on fishing but this is now only a small part of the local economy which now benefits from work in the oil/gas/renewables sector at the nearby Nigg Yard.
