Finding a home

Housing advice

The demand for social housing in Highland is greater than the number of homes available.

Our priority is to provide accommodation to people who need it the most. This includes families with children or other people who may be vulnerable in some way, because of age or health, who are homeless or who live in insecure, overcrowded or substandard accommodation.

Applying for social housing

Anyone 16 and over can apply for council and other social rented housing.


To help households we cannot offer social rented housing to, we have developed a guide to finding housing in the Highlands.  This provides information on what else you can do to help find housing that suits you. This includes information about private rents, aids and adaptations, buying a home, homelessness and much more.
