Cappercleuch is a small settlement in the parish of Yarrow in the former County of Selkirk in Scotland. Cappercleuch lies at the junction of the Meggat and Yarrow valleys, to the west of St. Mary's Loch, 16 miles (26 km) northeast of the town of Moffat. In 1978 the Meggat Dam was built 2 miles (3 km) to the west, creating the Meggat Reservoir, the longest reservoir in southwest Scotland.

This area is now part of the Ettrick Forest district of the unitary authority called the Scottish Borders.
