Le Tay (en anglais River Tay) est le plus long fleuve d'Écosse (193 km).

Issu des monts Grampians, il s'élargit dans sa partie centrale pour former le loch Tay, arrose Perth puis s'ouvre en mer du Nord par un large estuaire au bord duquel se trouve Dundee. Cet estuaire est connu sous le nom de Firth of Tay.
