Tweeddale (Scottish Gaelic: Srath Thuaidh/Tuaidhdail) was one of the four "committee area" or former districts in the Borders Region which existed in Scotland from 1975 to 1996. It is the traditional name for the area drained by the upper reaches of the River Tweed. This area was considered to end before the Yarrow Water flowed into the Tweed, so the area was bounded to the south and east by the Yarrow/Tweed watershed, and to the north and east by the Gala/Tweed watershed. Until 1975 it was named Peeblesshire.
