Welcome to Parallel 58

Parallel 58 is a new media design and development company specialising in funded community and heritage projects which leave a lasting benefit for the people of the far north.

Based in the rural community of Bettyhill, Sutherland, no other development company understands the specific requirements, social barriers, and issues of marginalisation that we face here in the Highlands And Islands. By strategic partnership and access to local and regional funding streams, we aim to support community groups, charities, and SMEs, providing to you an essential online presence where you need it most.

Parallel 58 are not some kid in his bedroom building substandard websites on his dad's laptop. Our staff have worked with some massive companies and organisations including Auto Trader, The Highland Council, Nuclear Decommissioning Authority, Gordon & MacPhail, NHS Scotland, NES Foundation, HIE, and Scottish Enterprise to name but a few.

Website development

Parallel 58 develop new media such as dynamic web projects, websites, mobile applications, video, audio, and more. We have considerable experience in dynamic, database driven, online projects, as well as heritage, tourism, hospitality, and e-Learning. Unlike our competitors, every one of our websites is developed from scratch, because we don't believe in fobbing our clients off with a one size fits all off the shelf product. This ensures that our clients see a product that is easy to manage and fit for purpose.


We are committed to the promotion and preservation of our far northern heritage and are experienced in the digitisation, preservation, and electronic publication of collections, artefacts, and documents. Our work with organisations such as The Wick Society, Thurso Heritage Society, Venture North, and Strathnaver Museum underlines our ability and competence in an arena where money is tight and small mistakes can make the difference beetween success and failure.


The Highland region is awash with sources of community funding made available through national and European bodies, as well as more regional sources such as those provided by renewable energy operators.

By working with potential clients and community groups to locate and secure funding streams, we can help you to offset the costs of your project and deliver high quality, sustainable results with broad appeal.


With years of experience in online development we are happy to engage in cost free advisory discussions with groups, companies, and organisations in order to help you bring your project from first concept to final product.

When it comes to changing words into actions, we can guide you in simple terms so that you fully understand the scope of your project and how to make it progress.
