Blyth Bridge is a small hamlet located in the Scottish Borders. It is located close to West Linton.

It is located in a bend on the A701 which goes from Moffat to Edinburgh, close to the junction with the East-West road the A72 which goes to Peebles. There is an aqueduct carrying a large water main which supplies Edinburgh which passes over Tarth Water. There are a number of Iron Age forts on the hills nearby, and the historic Drochil Castle is a short distance away.

Blythbank Farm nearby currently has a planning permission application to make it the largest free range egg farm in the world. [cite web
