Tayport, also known as Ferry-Port on Craig, is a town and burgh in the county of Fife, Scotland, acting as a commuter town for Dundee.
The motto of the Burgh is Te oportet alte ferri (“It is incumbent on you to carry yourself high”), a rather terrible pun on Tayport at auld Tay Ferry.
Tayport lies close to the north east tip of Fife. To the north it looks across the River Tay to Broughty Ferry and Broughty Castle. To the east is the vast Tentsmuir Nature Reserve, an area of forested dunes measuring some 3 km from east to west and 6 km from north to south and edged by wide sands that continue all the way round to the mouth of the River Eden.
