TAYPORT, known originally as South
Ferry, then successively Ferry of Scots-
craig and Ferry-port-on-Craig (a name now
confined to the parish in which the town is
â– situated), is a seaport town and police burgh
and was made such in the year 1887,
and is governed by a provost, two bailies and
six commissioners. Many houses and villas
have been erected on the slopes of tfie Tay,
commanding ti fine prospect of the opposite
shore; it has become to some extent a
residential suburb of Dundee, and is
situated on the Firth of Tay, opposite to
Broughty "Ferry, at about a mile distance
by water, 11 miles north-by-east from
Cupar, and 5 south-east from Dundee; it
has a station on the St. Andrews,
Leuchars and Tayport section of the North
British railway, and is connected by a
branch with the Tay bridge. For facilitat-
ing the , shipping of goods, the railway
company have constructed a dock and a
pier, which can he approached by
steamers at certain times of the tides.
There are two factories here for the spinnins
of yarns and the manufacture of linen and
jute goods, also a foundry, engine works,
and an extensive timber yard and works,
which provide employment for many of the
inhabitants. The North of Scotland Bank -
Limited has a branch here. The salmon
fishery, which is co-extensive with the
coast line of the parish, is actively pursued
during the season, the fish being mostly
sent to the London markets; mussel dredg-
ing is also carried on extensively in the
