Caddonfoot is a village and parish on the River Tweed, in Selkirkshire. It is situated on the A707 west of Galashiels. The village itself is at the mouth of the Caddon Water. The surrounding parishes are Stow (in Midlothian) to the north; Melrose (in Roxburghshire) to the north-east; Galashiels to the south-east; Selkirk to the south; Yarrow to the south-west; Traquair (in Peeblesshire) to the west; and Innerleithen to the north-west.
