Hiltown, Ross and Cromarty

Historical Description

HILTOWN, a village, in the parish of Fearn, county of Ross and Cromarty, 10 miles (E. S. E.) from Tain; containing 310 inhabitants. This is a fishing-village, lying on the eastern shore of the Moray Firth: the fishing is chiefly of grey fish and herrings, and is carried on to a considerable extent, in connexion with the village of Balintore, about half a mile southward. The coast between the two places is level and sandy; at Hiltown, however, it becomes high and rocky.
