Full Description

Ballintore farmsteading is depicted on the 1st edition of the OS 25-inch map (Inverness Mainland 1876, Sheet XI.1), at which time it comprised two buildings, one presumably a dwelling, the other, immediately to the NW, an L-plan range that incorporated a barn with a horse-engine attached to its SW side. Sometime before 1903, when the OS 6-inch map was revised, the steading was removed (its site now lies in an arable field) and a new steading, also called Balintore but spelled slightly differently, was constructed 130m to the ESE (1905, Sheet XI.1).
