Englandand Scotland. It rises on Tweedsmuirat Tweed's Wellnear where the Clyde, draining northwest, and the Annan draining south also rise. "Annan, Tweed and Clyde rise oot the ae hillside" as the Border saying has it. It drains the entire Borders region.

Major towns through which the Tweed flows include
