Highlands and Islands Enterprise is doing more than just creating the conditions for business growth. Without the business support of HIE we couldn’t have achieved what we have.

Malin House is an excellent base from which we can grow Xanthella. We’re carrying out some really exciting work from here on the west coast of Scotland. It’s a great place to be based as we’re within a hub of industry experts, with plenty of collaboration between other specialist organisations in the area.”
