Eddleston Water rises near Mount Lothian and passes through Waterheads, Eddleston, Milkieston, Redscarhead along the route of the A703. It runs passing Dundee and Dalatho into Peebles where the Tree Bridge crosses it.
When the Edinburgh to Peebles railway was built in the middle of the 19th century the river was straightened for much of its course which adversely affected the wildlife habitat and increased the speed of flow. As a result, the river is liable to flooding.
In August 2009 the University of Dundee was invited to carry out an initial study on how Eddleston Water could be restored to provide a better habitat for wildlife and to reduces the risk of flooding in Dalatho Dundee, Peebles and Eddleston.
