Mr. Sutherland complained to the council that the people from Hilton were now having to walk to Balintore to pay their rates, this applied to Shandwick as well. The council pointed out it only took 15 minutes to walk from Hilton to Balintore and it was no hardship, Mr Sutherland said he would like to see a council member do the walk in 15 minutes. Council decided the rates will continue to be collected in Balintore.
