River : River Nith
7th Longest River in Scotland
The River Nith (Scottish Gaelic: Abhainn Nid)
is the seventh longest river in Scotland. It rises in East Ayrshire
in the Carsphairn hills, and for the majority of its course flows
through Dumfries and Galloway, before spilling into the Solway Firth
at Dumfries. The territory through which the river flows is called
Nithsdale (historically known as "Stranit" from Scottish Gaelic:
Strath Nid, "valley of the Nith").
