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 the post office, pharmacy, hotel, pub and 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. Tain is the nearest town, approximately 7 miles away where professional, medical and banking services can be found. The town has one bank, a medical practice, Lidl, Co-op, Asda, Tesco and a variety of local shops and hotels, two primary schools and Tain Royal Academy. A number of recreational pursuits can be enjoyed in the area such as golf, bowls and tennis. The Highland capital, Inverness is 34 miles to the south where all major transport links can be found. A commuter train goes from Tain and Fearn (2 miles from Balintore) to Inverness daily.
