The Water of Fleet near Nether Rusco

The Water of Fleet is a river in Kirkcudbrightshire, flowing into Fleet Bay on the Solway Firth, which is filled also by the waters of the River Cree.

The two tributaries of the river are the 'Big Water of Fleet', which begins around Loch Grannoch, and the 'Little Water of Fleet'.

The river flows through Gatehouse of Fleet before meeting the sea.

The Big Water of Fleet is crossed by a twenty-span viaduct, which was once a part of the Portpatrick Railway route.

The river enters Fleet Bay
