Caithness Business Fund is a private sector fund established to distribute grants to small businesses within the Caithness and North Sutherland area.

The Fund's mission is to promote the economic growth of Caithness and North Sutherland by supporting new and existing businesses and developing the skill base to meet new challenges.


The Fund was created after discussions between Caithness Chamber of Commerce and Baillie Wind Farm Ltd who had a vision to see a wider area of Caithness and North Sutherland benefit from local wind farms. Baillie Wind Farm Ltd is contributing £25,000 per annum to the Fund so that it can promote economic growth and assist small businesses.

If you have an existing business or are looking to start a business, check if you are eligible to apply for a grant to assist your business development. Alternatively if you are a business, developer or invidual who would like to find out how the Fund can assist you in making an investment in Caithness contact us on 01847 500104 or see our Funder's Brief
