Welcome To Beacon

Our Story

Founded in 2018, the Beacon brand emerged after our original store, "Bosuns Locker," moved into a newly refurbished 7,500 sq ft retail space in 2016. This pivotal move facilitated the expansion of our product range to include premium lifestyle brands like Schoffel, Didriksons, Joules and Fairfax & Favor.

Since then, we've continued to expand our product and brand offering, incorporating an array of homeware products such as candles, books, games, drinkware and more.


Bosuns Locker Founded

Opening originally as a marine chandlery, Bosuns Locker grew to become one of the largest chandlers, boat sales and marine service centres in Scotland.

Trading today as Port Edgar Chandlery, you will find everything you need for life on the water, from quality sailing gear by top brands including Helly Hansen, Musto and Gill, to a huge catalogue of marine hardware such as paints, rigging, safety gear and more.


Port Edgar Redevelopment Begins

The redevelopment of Port Edgar Marina began in 2014 which included plans for a new 7,500 sq ft retail space in a historial World War I shed. Seizing this opportunity, Bosuns Locker set its sights on a significant expansion.


New Store Opens

In 2016, the construction of the new retail space reached completion. Bosuns Locker moved into the new space and expanded it's offering with premium lifestyle clothing from brands such as Schoffel, Didriksons, Joules and Fairfax & Favor.


Beacon Brand Launched

Following the success and popularity of our expanded product offering, the Beacon brand was launched in 2018 and became home to our premium lifestyle brands whilst staying true to our nautical roots.



Since the Beacon brand launched in 2018, we've continued to expand our product and brand offering, incorporating an array of homeware products such as candles, books, games, drinkware and more.

"What a great variety of quality clothing for indoor and outdoor. Pleasant shop to wander round."

"I can’t fault this store one bit! Their customer service has been impeccable, even putting a pair of boots aside for me until payday as I didn’t want to miss out on them! Everything has been so efficient and I am over the moon with my new boots. Highly recommended!"

"I used the click & collect service to get myself a new Didrikson’s coat, an essential purchase in this weather. Look forward to visiting the shop again once lockdown is over!"
