Peterhead Port Authority
The Authority is a Trust Port and was founded on 1st January 2006. Its purpose is to hold, manage, maintain and develop the Port of Peterhead, with all profits reinvested. Trust ports are independent statutory bodies created by legislation. There has been a harbour at Peterhead for more than 400 years. During that time the success of the town has been closely linked to the level of maritime trade and activity.
