Name and dates

Peterhead Harbour (1862-1939)

Opened on the Formartine and Buchan Railway.

Description

The branch to the harbour served Port Henry, the west side of the North Harbour (with a timber yard and line onto the centre pier, Scotts Pier, accessed by turnplates) and the west side of the South Harbour.

The railway to the harbour left Peterhead station goods yard and skirted the town to the north, approaching the harbour from the north. It was cut back to Port Henry, where a new set of sidings was prepared around 1900, before final closure in 1939.

The slaughterhouse to the north of the harbour was also served.
