Balintore & Shandwick

Small villages in Easter Ross in the Highlands with beautiful beach (Shandwick Bay) much loved by walkers and surfers when conditions right. 


Balintore and Shandwick stand on the coast beside each other. The crescent of Shandwick Bay lies to the East of them and Balintore has a charming stone harbour more akin to one of the harbours of East Neuk. 

The nearest main town is Tain across the Peninsula.
