Helmsdale (Scots: Helmsdal, Scottish Gaelic: Bun Ilidh) is a village on the east coast of Sutherland, in the Highland council area of Scotland. The modern village was planned in 1814 to resettle communities that had been removed from the surrounding straths as part of the Highland Clearances.

Timespan is a cultural centre that contains a museum telling a story from the harbour to the hills. It has the only contemporary art gallery in the county which has six Exhibitions a year which follow the organisations annual themes. The archive contains more than eleven thousand items donated by the local community and contains genealogy information of many of the local families. The River Cafe offers home baking and light lunches with some outdoor Seating by the river enabling you to watch the wildlife close up. The gift shop has a wide variety from childrens' toys to local pottery.
As others acknowledge, not large but friendly and with informative exhibits. Upstairs art installation was obviously arty but a bit weird. Good coffee and cakesMany thanks for your positive review. The gallery exhibition you mention has now closed, and we are preparing the gallery for an exhibition opening on 1st September 2017 by Tonje Boe Birkland, a Norwegian artist.

The northern Scottish town of Helmsdale is home to the Helmsdale River which is a fly fisherman/woman's dream. The river is divided into beats and administered by a local association. We ourselves traveled through here and fished further west in two nearby lochs. The brown trout was a delightful fish to test our casting abilities, and salmon may also be found here along. Although I did not do it, I was told the story of fishing for sea trout on the river at night is a great pursuit. The use of a ghillie or Scottish fishing guide is highly advised to enhance the joy of this experience. Even if you don't fish, the beauty of this area is majestic.

The shoreline at Helmsdale is a mixture of sand, pebbles and rocks and so is great for beach combing and to the north, rock-pooling. The local geology is really interesting which means the variety of pebbles and stones in the area is amazing. I found an amethyst one of the last times I went exploring! It's a renowned place to find fossils - but we haven't been lucky enough to find any yet.

Wanted to see this statue, but it is not signposted, yet there is a car park built for it just south of town over the bridge. It is on the town trail if you have the time
