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. [ [http://www.genuki.org.uk/big/sct/PEE/ Genuki - Peeblesshire] ]

After the local government reorganisation of 1975 the use of the name Peeblesshire was discontinued, and the area was governed as the district of Tweeddale.
