Tayport Harbour in Fife, Scotland has recently been dredged by Van Oord, one of the largest dredging companies in the world. The entrance channel is now 0.8m below chart datum and the harbour is now 0.6m below chart datum. This means most boats will be able to enter and exit the Tayport Harbour on all but very low spring tides.
Tayport has also recently opened newly-built shower and toilet facilities, making it an attractive stopping point on the east coast of Scotland, both as a destination in itself and as a stop-off for those heading north. Overnight berthing fees remain at £16 for the 2016 season, which includes the use of power and water. More details can be found on our new website tayportharbour.org.uk
Tayport Harbour is owned and run by Tayport Harbour Trust. The harbour has pontoon berthing for 88 yachts and visitor berthing for 7 yachts on the walls, with pontoon berthing when available. The harbour is situated on the South side of the River Tay opposite Broughty Ferry castle and the entrance is marked by a fairway buoy at the edge of deep water approximately 100 m from the harbour wall.
