The Seaboard villages of Shandwick, Balintore and Hilton have a fascinating history.
The Picts were instrumental in setting up home here. Magnificent stone cross-slabs in all three locations date from then. In recent times these villages boomed as fishing communities in the 19th century, first with the herring fishery and then later with the salmon fishery.
Enjoy picturesque coastal walks along the award winning sandy beaches and the beautiful rocky coastline from Shandwick, through to Tarbat Ness, Portmahomack and Inver.
