About us

Welcome to Parallel 58

Parallel 58 is a new media design and development company born from the ashes of the North Highland College's NHC Online. Drawing on the well established skills of former NHC Online team members, we specialise 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 media development organisation understands the specific requirements, social barriers, and issues of marginalisation that we face. By strategic partnership throughout the far north and access to local and regional funding streams, we aim to support community groups, charities, and SMEs, providing to you an essential online presence.


Scotland's far north is rich in sources of community funding made available through national and European bodies, as well as more regional sources such as those provided by renewable energy installations.

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 and longevity.


With years of experience in new media 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.

.New media
