Who we are

We are Albyn Housing Society Ltd. We are your landlord and own the home you live in.  We are a non-profit-making housing association, and also a Scottish Charity.   We were formed in 1973 to provide good-quality rented homes for people working in new industries in the East Ross area.   Since then we have grown to cover most of the Highlands and part of Moray, and have become involved in many new areas of work.

Our head office is in Invergordon, and we have over 2,500 homes across the following parts of The Highland Council area.

  • Caithness
  • Sutherland 
  • Ross-shire 
  • Inverness-shire
  • Nairn 
  • Badenoch & Strathspey

We also have a small number of properties in The Moray Council area.  Most of our homes are for rent, and are a mixture of houses, flats and bungalows in both towns and rural areas.
Our main activities are as follows.


  • Looking after the homes we own and rent out
  • Managing homes leased to us by other property owners for us to rent out
  • Providing estate-management services to property owners within our communities
  • Building new homes to meet housing needs
  • Helping our tenants to manage their tenancies
  • Supporting and encouraging communities to improve their economic, social and physical conditions

Our services are provided by staff based at our offices in Invergordon and Inverness. Wealso have a member of staff who, for part of the week, is based in the Caithness and Sutherland area with a small office base at the PPP Building in Huddart street. Staff at that office provide local housing support to our tenants in Caithness and North Sutherland.

We are a registered social landlord, registered with the Scottish Government.  This means we have set rules, and that we are inspected from time to time to make sure we are providing a good standard of housing and housing management.  The inspection is carried out by the Scottish Housing Regulator who also checks how our business is run, and makes sure that there are opportunities for you to become involved if you want to.
