Hound point

Hound Point, is a marine terminal just East of the Forth Bridge in the Firth of Forth, Scotland. First opened in 1975 it is owned and operated by BP as an oil export terminal for North Sea oil and is the largest such facility in Scotland.

The terminal is made up of two sea island berths that can load vessels of up to 350,000 DWT. Crude oil is supplied by the Forties Pipeline and is loaded from a tank farm at Dalmeny on the Southern shore of the estuary or direct from the pipeline.
