Balintore

Balintore is about 27 miles from our B&B. It has a fine sandy beach at Shandwick Bay and is adjacent to the village of Hilton of Cadboll and two famous Pictish Stones. Balintore has the atmosphere of a forgotten village, being off the main tourist and business routes along the A9, making it feel rather quaint. There are coastal walks to Hilton and beyond through to Portmahomack, and also onto the cliffs to the south of Shandwick Bay. Dolphins can sometimes be seen from the area, and there are fine views across the Moray Firth towards the Cairngorms in the distance.
