TLC + Associates was formed in 2013 when two rural ladies decided to take on the world, well at least the Highlands of Scotland.  Tina and Lucy met at the school gate whilst their children attended Gaelic Medium Education.  With a great range of complementary skills, their journey began and they now have a thriving rural business consultancy based in Ullapool, Scottish Highlands.
