About Us

Based on the East Coast of Scotland, Montrose Port Authority is a thriving support and service hub for the North Sea energy and shipping industries.

Established in 1493, Montrose Port has developed over the centuries to establish its reputation as a leading centre of international trade and distribution throughout Scotland and northern England. We are known for our flexible approach. Through our port stakeholders we offer a broad range of port related services including agency, stevedoring, storage and bunkering.

Offering around 1000 metres of quayside on both the north and south side of the Harbour, Montrose Port provides a sheltered haven almost half a mile long. Port facilities include water berths to a depth of 8m, 130,000m2 of open storage, 42,000m2 warehousing and over 2,000m2 of office space.

Montrose Port Authority has operated as a Trust port for nearly 200 years. In that time, the Trust Board has used its wide range of knowledge and experience to steer the management and development of the Port into the 21st century Port we see today.
