Perth Harbour
Perth Harbour
Perth Harbour is strategically located at the highest navigable point of the River Tay. In medieval times, cargoes were brought into the heart of the town, but nowadays the harbour is based at Frairton, about a mile downriver, in much deeper water.

Coastal and dry bulk ships up to 90 metres in length can be accepted into Perth Harbour, day or night, carrying up to 2500 tonnes. Vessels can be received on one high tide and depart on the next.

Cargoes range from traditional agricultural related cargoes such as animal feedstuffs and fertilisers to timber, chemicals and baryte ore.
