Megget Water

The Megget Reservoir and Megget Water, Selkirkshire
Not to be confused with the nearby Meggat Water which is a tributary of the Border Esk.

Megget Water is a river in the Scottish Borders area of Scotland, in the former Selkirkshire. The Water rises at Broad Hill, passes through Megget Reservoir and empties into St Mary's Loch. Places in the vicinity include Cappercleuch, Craigierig, Cramalt Tower, the Glengaber Burn, Meggethead Farm.

The area is of geological and archaeological interest, through stone artifacts at Henderland in the parish of Yarrow (now in Wilton Lodge Museum, Hawick), and discoveries of gold.
