About Glencoast & Me.

My name is Yvonne Grant, I am the sole owner of Glencoast, Helmsdale. I was brought up in this small traditional fishing village, where my family have always had close connections to the fishing industry, both at sea and river.

Both my Father and Grandfather were Ghillie's for many years on The River Helmsdale. There passion for both river and sea has been firmly installed in me, and I am now extremely lucky to bring up my own family in this way having learnt to share that love for the outdoor lifestyle.

My previous experiences has been working within a family run tackle business and the tourist sector of Clynelish distillery, seeing the potential locally led me to use my skills and take the leap to open my own fishing tackle and outdoor country store over 2 years ago. Running a retail outlet to meet the needs of such a diverse rural community. This has been challenging at times particularly being "a lassie with a tackle shop! .

The shop is located centrally in the village , within walking distance of the harbour and river, we can also advice on local loch fishing availability .

We stock everything you need for your visit along with ladies and gents outdoor clothing, footwear and accessories. We also keep an original selection of local arts and crafts, highland gins and malt whiskies.

I look forward to discussing your needs.
