The Water of Fleet is a river in Scotland flowing into Fleet Bay on the Solway. Its two tributaries are the 'Big Water of Fleet', which begins around Loch Grannoch, and the 'Little Water of Fleet'. The river flows through Gatehouse of Fleet before meeting the sea.[1]

The Big Water of Fleet is crossed by a twenty span viaduct, which was once a part of the Portpatrick Railway route.
