Early Harbour

Source: McDonald and Small, Northern Studies, 30, 1-18
It is believed that the earliest harbour and beaching area in Dundee was around the mouth of the Scouring Burn. This meant a very short journey (ca. 20m) to the market in the Seagate. Some writers claim that the main harbour moved to the embayment between St Nicholas Craig and Castle Rock by the mid 13th century but there is no real evidence for this. Possibly both this area and the Scouring Burn foreshore were used depending on requirements.
