Perth's harbour has been put on the market by Perth and Kinross Council.

The sea port is located on the River Tay, and can handle ships up to 90m in length, carrying 2,500 tonnes of cargo, 24 hours a day.

Property firm Bidwells, which is marketing the harbour on behalf of the local authority, said the council aimed to "secure the future harbour operations as a key logistics hub".

The firm will be accepting expressions of interest over the coming months.

Graeme Duncan, head of commercial property at Bidwells, said: "Perth Harbour is unique in the area because of its location - moving away from the large coastal ports such as Aberdeen and Dundee brings costs down while keeping the advantages of proximity to the North Sea and excellent rail and road transport links.

"The harbour would make the ideal investment for a company looking for a logistics hub in the centre of Scotland."
