For general summary of Dundee Harbour and the Port of Dundee, see NO43SW 109.

The King William IV Dock at Dundee formed part of the docks complex to the W of the N end of the present Tay Road Bridge (NO42NW 75). Access was gained from the river through the Tidal Harbour (NO43SW 1001.00), which also gave access to the Earl Grey Dock (NO43SW 515, to the W). It is noted and depicted by GIS historic mapping (epoch 2).

The location assigned to this record remains unverified from current map evidence within an area of car parks and extensive urban redevelopment.
