Firth of Tay

The Firth of Tay (Scottish Gaelic: Linne Tatha) is a firth in Scotland between the council areas of Fife, Perth and Kinross, the City of Dundee and Angus, into which Scotland's largest river in terms of flow, the River Tay empties. The firth has a maximum width of 3 mi (4.8 km) at Invergowrie.

Two bridges span the firth, the Tay Road Bridge and the Tay Rail Bridge.

Firth of Tay and Eden Estuary were designated Ramsar sites on 28 July 2000.

The firth has one major island, the marshy Mugdrum Island.

The Firth of Tay in Antarctica was discovered in 1892-93 by Captain Thomas Robertson of the Dundee whaling expedition and named by him after the one in Scotland. He also named nearby Dundee Island in honour of the main city on the firth.
