Key Scottish Commercial Port On The Market

Unique investment / development opportunity at Perth Harbour 

One of Scotland’s key commercial ports, Perth Harbour, is being marketed by Bidwells on behalf of Perth and Kinross Council, who are seeking investment to secure the future harbour operations as a key logistics hub.

The working sea port provides a lower cost alternative to larger coastal ports and is situated on the River Tay just 30 miles from the North Sea. Perth is Scotland’s newest city and one of its fastest growing. The city’s location is at the centre of Scotland’s transport network and at the gateway to the Highlands, offers strategic benefits to businesses. 90% of Scotland’s population can be accessed within a 90 minute drive of Perth and Scotland’s two major airports are accessible in under an hour.

Perth Harbour currently operates 24 hours a day handling coastal and dry bulk ships up to 90 metres in length, carrying up to 2,500 tonnes of cargo from Europe, the Baltic and Scandinavia dock at its four main berths. Operations work in time with the tides with vessels arriving on one high tide and departing on the next to ensure maximum efficiency.

The property comes with surfaced car and lorry parks, a large warehouse and is located within a well-established commercial estate with an expanding community of businesses including many of Perth’s most successful and long established companies.

Graeme Duncan, Head of Commercial Property at property firm Bidwells who are handling the sale, said: “Perth Harbour is unique in the area because of its location – moving away from the large coastal ports such as Aberdeen and Dundee brings costs down while keeping the advantages of proximity to the North Sea and excellent rail and road transport links.

“The harbour would make the ideal investment for a company looking for a logistics hub in the centre of Scotland. We will be accepting expressions of interest over the next few months to allow all prospective bidders to come forward before a closing date is set.”
