Balintore is one of three seaside villages on this 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, one shop which incorporates a cash point, pharmacy, hotel, pub and village hall which incorporates a post office and 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.
