Blyth Bridge is a small hamlet in Peeblesshire, near West Linton.

The hamlet sits in a bend on the A701 road which runs from Moffat to Edinburgh, close to the junction with the A72 east-west road to the county town, Peebles.

Places nearby include the Lyne Water, Carlops, Romannobridge, and the Deepsyke Forest.

There is an aqueduct here carrying a large water main which supplies Edinburgh and passes over Tarth Water.

A number of Iron Age forts are to be found 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.[1]
