HELPING TO BUILD A SUCCESSFUL REGION SINCE 1965

We are the economic and community development agency for the Highlands and Islands of Scotland. We've been working with organisations and communities for over 50 years to ensure the region remains successful and competitive.

About us

STRATEGY AND VISION

We want the Highlands and Islands to be a leading net zero region with a dynamic wellbeing economy, which benefits its growing population and makes a valued contribution to Scotland.

Our Strategy covers a five-year period and details how we will deliver through investment in People, Place, Planet and Prosperity.
