Service provided for Highland area (6)


I believe the answer is:


I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'highland area' is the definition.
'massif' can be an answer for 'area' (I have seen 'mountainous area' mean 'massif' so perhaps 'area' could also mean 'massif'). I am not sure about the 'highland' bit.

'service provided' is the wordplay.
'service' becomes 'mass' (I've seen this in other clues).
'provided' becomes 'if'.

'for' acts as a link.

Can you help me to learn more?

(Other definitions for massif that I've seen before include "huge piece of crust" , "Mountain block" , "Extensive raised area" , "French mountain range" , "Compact group of mountains" .)

I've seen this clue in The Independent.
