Peeblesshire (Siorrachd nam Pùballan in Gaelic), the County of Peebles or Tweeddale was a county of Scotland. Its main town was Peebles, and it bordered Midlothian to the north, Selkirkshire to the east, Dumfriesshire to the south, and Lanarkshire to the west.
The term Peeblesshire is still in common usage with local inhabitants as a form of identity and is regularly used in addresses as opposed to 'Tweedale' or 'Scottish Borders'. The local newspaper is called the Peeblesshire News and the area Peeblesshire used to cover approximates to the current catchment of Peebles High School.
