Kirkcaldy Harbour (Port Code:GBKWL), positioned on the northern side of the Firth of Forth, is perfectly equipped to accommodate standard general cargo coaster vessels; regularly handling a wide variety of bulk goods, including high volumes of grains and cereals in particular. Kirkcaldy was an important harbour in the 17th century. More recently, the docks served the town's linoleum industry. After many centuries, commercial trading activities at the port of Kirkcaldy ceased in the late '80s and the harbour was destined to be turned into a marina.
However, it was announced by owners Forth Ports Plc in March 2011 that it is to re-open to cargo vessels after more than twenty years out of use. In 2011, following a 20-year gap, the tidal harbour re-opened for commercial business and to serve the local flour mill, Hutchisons Mill – part of the Carr’s Milling Group – with the mill offering a high-capacity silo intake facility, positioned directly adjacent to the quayside.
