Fraserburgh Harbour is situated in the North East corner of Scotland and is ideally positioned for the fishing grounds of the North and East of Scotland as well as being in close proximity to the North Sea oil and gas fields and now the emerging renewables market. The location also makes it well placed for trade with Scandinavia and the Baltic sea ports.

Fraserburgh has good communications by road A952 to Aberdeen (40 miles) with other links to a wide hinterland. Airport and rail facilities are in Aberdeen, local transportation facilities and customs services provided as required.

The harbour has easy access and safe berthing with approximately 2.5 miles of quayside. Ongoing development include the deepening of the north harbour with the previous deepening of the entrance channel to a depth of 6.5 metres at mlws. A depth of 7.5 metres at mlws is available on the north side of Provost Anderson's Jetty. Industrial ground for onshore development is also available.

Port Movements are controlled from the Watch Tower situated on the West Pier. Vessels entering, leaving or moving around the harbour must report on VHF Channel 12. Port radar is also in operation. A Harbour Guard Security System by a mobile patrol and CCTV System assist in producing good security cover in the harbour areas.
