Point Law Peninsula

A section of Aberdeen Harbour, Point Law Peninsula forms a finger of land between the River Dee and the Albert Basin. Once a low-lying island in the Dee, it took its current form in the later 19th century when the course of the river was diverted south to allow expansion of the harbour. The Albert Quay runs along the north side, while the North Esplanade and Mearns Quay occupy its southern side. The peninsula includes two oil exploration bases and an oil-services training centre, with the Point Law Oil Terminal at its head.
