Stone from the nearby quarries was formerly loaded onto barges in Kingoodie Bay

Kingoodie (Scottish Gaelic: Ceann Gaothach or Scottish Gaelic: Ceann na Gaoithe "windy head(land)") is a hamlet about 4 miles south west of Dundee, but in the region of Perth and Kinross, Scotland. The shore is easily accessible and close to the Firth of Tay.[1]

Quarries close to Kingoodie supplied the town with building stone for a number of centuries. This stone was important for the building of sea walls to protect the town from the tide and the harbour works.

The population is approximately 60 people (as of 2009).
