Scottish Ports and Harbours

What is it: 

Ports are a key part of the maritime infrastructure, providing the transport infrastructure between land and sea. Ports are critical in the effective movement of cargo and people especially in the context of today's global economy and ever increasing demands of the customer.

The 11 major ports are defined as regularly handling over 1M tonnes per year.

Habour limits are set down in Harbour Order legislation.
