About Us


Charting the uncharted

Our structure and enviable location allows us to offer customers a flexible and accessible service which is distinctive to Montrose.

We understand that our customers are looking to save on costs where possible, while ensuring safety and profitability are at a premium. Our unique advantage of being a smaller port, but with all the comprehensive facilities and expertise of larger ports, means we can offer an agile and hands-on service with direct access to staff 24/7, all at competitive rates. We find that having this direct link to our team day and night prevents frustrations with communication issues, delays and ultimately spiralling costs.

Offering around 1,000 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.

We can offer affordable layover rates which means that you can stay in port for as long as you need in order to mobilise or demobilise. Marine customers are also able to benefit from using any stevedoring or fuel supplier for bunkering that they prefer, appropriate to their individual requirements.

As one of a number of Trust Ports across Scotland, all profits we make are reinvested back into the Port meaning we can make continuous upgrades to our infrastructure and facilities while keeping our rates competitive for our customers. This investment along with our dynamic approach allows us to make tailored and bespoke solutions to suit our customers’ needs.
