The Port of Leith is the largest enclosed deepwater port in Scotland and has the capability to handle ships up to 50,000 DWT.
The port is located in the north east of the city of Edinburgh with easy access to Scotland's major motorways, including the A1, the Edinburgh by-pass, the M8 and the M9. The port offers rail and road connections and is ideally located for all North Sea activities.
The port provides full stevedoring and cargo handling services for a range of vessels and cargoes, including dry bulk, grain and animal feeds. The port is well equipped with a number of cranes and equipment, along with secure storage facilities.
Leith has earned a strong reputation for its support services for offshore developments. In 2012, a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between the port, Scottish Enterprise and the City of Edinburgh was signed with the aim of developing a new masterplan to create a 21st century gateway for the port, which will support key industries throughout Scotland.
The Port of Leith is also an important marquee destination for the northern European cruise industry, handling 40 vessels and 20,000 passengers per annum. The Cruise Terminal offers facilities for transit and turnaround calls. Its central location is ideal for shore excursions to historic Edinburgh and the surrounding areas.
