Douglas Water
Douglas Water
The Douglas Water is a river in south Scotland, and is a tributary of the River Clyde. Its course is entirely within the South Lanarkshire council area. The river's name comes from the Gaelic dubh-glas, meaning black water.
The river rises in the hills which separate Lanarkshire from Ayrshire, to the south west of Muirkirk. The Douglas Water runs north-east then east into Douglasdale. Here the river flows through the village of Douglas, and past the scant remains of Douglas Castle. East of Douglas, the river passes under the M74 motorway. The Douglas Water flows into the Clyde around 3 miles south of Lanark.
