Rosyth port information

Rosyth was once one of the strongholds of our Navy when it was a naval base, but now even the Trident submarines are no longer based here, although you can still see them there on Google Earth.   In 1997 Babcock International bought it from the MoD, and they still service the Navy, but have expanded into other things.

Although the port and the adjacent town are Rosyth, the reason to berth here is for Edinburgh which is only a short bus ride across the bridge, (or you can take the train).   If your ship is not too big you will come in here and berth at the woodyard to avoid anchoring in the river and tendering in via Queensferry.   Some private yachts might berth in Queensferrry but it is a very small harbour; I have only been to Rosyth so I do not know if this happens or not.   The big ones defintely anchor in the river and tender in, I have seen it.
