About Montrose

The harbour lies within a mile of open sea on the river Esk and provides a sheltered haven almost half a mile long. There are no tidal restrictions to any of the berths in Montrose which have been developed on both the north and south banks of the river affording over 1000 metres of riverside quay.

The port has an interesting history which can be traced back to the 12th century. Recent years have seen substantial development with the coming of the North Sea Oil and Gas industry.

Montrose trades in paper, forest products, aggregates, grain, scrap metal, animal feed, malting barley, fertiliser and oil related products and also handles most of the pulp imported into Scotland.
