Abstract

This research is concerned primarily with the provision of private and public sector business services in the Highlands of Scotland. This is a sparsely populated area with a variety of economic problems, including remoteness from main centres providing business services. The research involved a survey of over fifty manufacturing and fish farming enterprises in the region, and fourteen accountancy firms. Semi-structured interviews identified which services firms use and provided information on the quality of services.
