NEWPORT, a handsome village and a
police burgh, in the civil parish of Forgan
and quoad sacra parish formed from For-
gan, stretching along the Firth of Tay, is
picturesquely situated, directly opposite to
Dundee, and about 2 miles north there-
from, and 3 south-west from Tayport, the
ground sloping upwards to a considerable
height from the river Tay. Many villas
have been erected here ; and as there is
constant communication with Dundee by
railway since the opening of the Tay
Bridge, and also by the steamers which ply
hourly, and the climate being salubrious
and comparatively mild, it has now become
a popular suburb of Dundee. The south
â– end of the Tay Bridge is at Wormit, about
a mile to the west of Newport. There is a
station on the North British railway at
East Newport for goods and passengers,
and one at West Newport for passengers
' only. Newport was made a burgh in No-
vember, 1887, and is governed by a
frovost, two bailies and six commissioners.
t possesses five churches, and a public
hall, erected at a cost of £4,000. The area
of the burgh is 306; rateable value,
£30,468. Population in 1891, 2,700, and in
1901 was burgh, 3,976, and ecclesiastical
parish, 2,063.
Wormit (now incorporated' with New-
port) is pleasantly and conveniently
situated for Dundee business men; there
is a station here on the North British line,
and many villas overlooking the river have
been erected since the opening of the Tay
Bridge. There is an Established Church
and a United Free Church. The popula-
tion in 1901 was 876.
