The River Tweed is a large river which rises in the Lowther Hills and enters the sea at Berwick-Upon-Tweed. Most of its 97 mile journey is through the Scottish Borders but to the east of Kelso it forms the boundary between Scotland and England and eventually flows into the sea in Northumberland. The river is known as one of the great salmon rivers of Britain and in many places fishermen are in evidence.
It is a peaceful majestic river passing through the towns of Innerleithen, Peebles, Gallashiels, Melrose, Kelso, Coldstream and Berwick-Upon-Tweed. On its journey the river also passes, Dryburgh Abbey, Norham and Paxton House and is spanned by many great bridges, such as The Drygrange Old Bridge, Leaderfoot Viaduct, Chain Bridge, Kelso Bridge, Coldstream Bridge, Ladykirk and Norham Bridge, Union Chain Bridge, Royal Border Bridge , Royal Tweed Bridge and Berwick Bridge.
