Big Water of Fleet

A river of Dumfries and Galloway, the Big Water of Fleet rises in headstreams to the south of Loch Grannoch in the Galloway Hills. It flows southeastwards to join the Little Water of Fleet to become the Water of Fleet, 3 miles (5 km) northwest of Gatehouse of Fleet. The Big Water of Fleet is crossed by a 20-span viaduct built for the Portpatrick Railway which opened in 1861.
