Port of Rosyth


Centrally located on the north bank of the River Forth, upstream of the Forth Road and Rails bridges, the Port of Rosyth is a key gateway into Fife. The port provides easy access to the M90, the Forth Road Bridge and the main arterial motorways through Scotland.

It is strategically located for businesses that require a riverside location and logistical support, including its unique roll on / roll off freight ferry service which links Scotland with mainland Europe.

As well as the freight ferry service, the port handles a range of cargoes, including timber, bulk salt, rapeseed meal and animal feed. The port provides a range of facilities and state-of-the-art equipment to help meet businesses’ individual logistical needs.

  • Riverside berths 
  • Ro-Ro terminal
  • Bulk sheds
  • Open storage facilities 
  • Warehousing 
  • Automotive handling facilities
  • Weighbridge

The port is currently performing a vital support role as the marine hub throughout the construction of the new Forth Crossing.  Forth Crossing Bridge Constructors, (FCBC), is utilising the port’s close location to the construction site to store and transport equipment and essential materials, which is only a matter of minutes away from the new bridge build site.

The port also offers key berthing facilities for both transit and turnaround cruise calls.  Car parking close to the main cruise terminal make it an ideal location for turnaround calls for passengers from Scotland and the north of England. The recently revamped terminal offers catering facilities, Wi-Fi and an information desk for passengers.
