Highland Opportunity Fund

This fund provides a variety of low-interest loans to businesses in the Highlands including those for community and youth enterprises.

Resource efficiency measures may be covered under working capital, equipment costs or refurbishment of premises.

Loans of between £5,000 and £100,000 considered, with affordable interest rates, currently 5%-8% and flexible repayment terms up to 7 years.  The evaluation of applications is risk aware but not risk averse, meaning businesses that have been turned away from other funding streams may still be able to access Highland Opportunity loans.
