We have been designing and building websites for our clients throughout the Highlands & Islands since the late 90s – everything from small ‘brochure’ websites to large database driven web applications.

We believe that simple design and good functionality are key to your website’s success, which is why we give each client a custom responsive design to fit their brand, and ensure that your website is as easy as possible for customers to navigate and use, and ultimately book to stay, buy a product or simply get in touch.

We never use ‘off-the-shelf’ templates – every website is built from scratch using our custom responsive framework.

Mobile-friendly Responsive Websites that work on any device

All our websites are built to work on any desktop, laptop, tablet and mobile using a technique known as ‘responsive design‘. This means that your website’s layout will adapt to any screen size and orientation, ensuring that your customers have the optimum user experience no matter what device they are using. It also ensures that your website is future-proof so that no matter what new devices appear on the market, your website is guaranteed to work on them.

Why is a Mobile-friendly Responsive Website important?

In 2015, mobile web usage in the UK overtook traditional desktop/laptop usage for the first time, so it is essential that your website is built to work on every device, especially now that Google ranks websites that aren’t mobile-optimised below those that are, on searches from mobile devices including tablets, and recently saw mobile search requests overtake those of desktops.

What are the main benefits of having a Responsive Website?

  • Provides a better user experience for your customers
  • Ranks higher on Google search results than sites that are not mobile-optimised
  • Works on ANY device including mobiles and tablets
  • Future-proof

Does a Responsive Website cost me extra?

We believe that every website should be built correctly using the latest techniques and web standards. No matter how big or small a website you require, the price we give you will always include a responsive design.
