Brian Horisk

We are a software development consultancy specialising in developing databases, web sites, web applications and mobile apps. Using our 18 years’ consultancy experience we are able to provide an end-to-end design and development service which is bespoke to your organisation.


Having previously worked in IT in publishing and manufacturing, Brian Horisk founded the company in 2001 so he could do more work on the web. Iain Leslie joined in 2004 and we have been trading under our current structure since 2011. Our team of six is mostly based in our Cupar office.

In 2016 Horisk were one of just 20 international, UK and Scottish companies to be awarded a place on the Scottish Government Application Design and Development Services (ADDS) framework, and are a supplier to the Crown Commercial Service Digital Outcomes and Specialists framework and the Scottish Government Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS) 2.0 for Digital Technology Services.


We engage with our clients in an approachable manner, doing our best to avoid jargon, and advising on the most suitable solution to meet or exceed their needs while delivering a bespoke development service for a user-friendly result. Our solutions are developed using industry standard platforms to ensure that our solutions are robust, functionally rich and meet our client's needs, and that on-going maintenance and support is as simple and transferable as possible.

Our clients trust us to develop business critical, user-friendly applications, support them over the long-term and upgrade them to meet changing requirements over time.
