The River Nith ( _gd. Abhainn Nid) is the seventh longest river in Scotland. It rises in East Ayrshire, 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 _gd. Strath Nid, "valley of the Nith").
