Peterhead Port Authority operates the UK's most unique all-purpose, all-weather port 24/7/365.

With more than 3km of berthing space at depths of up to 14m, we have a proud record of directly providing and supporting the provision of first-class facilities and services for the fisheries, oil and gas, renewables and leisure sectors.

We continue to build on our long-standing status as the country's biggest white fish and pelagic port, most recently opening a new state-of-the-art fish market which quickly attained the highest AA rating from BRC Global Standards, deepening the adjacent North Basin and reconstructing the surrounding quaysides.

Our Clients

Our clients operate in a remarkably broad range of sectors, from energy (oil and gas, renewables) through fisheries to commercial (agricultural and timber products) and leisure (cruise-ships, small-boat marina).

Port services include port control, pilotage, towage, ship lift, slipway, drydock, weighbridge and property for lease.
