Peeblesshire (Siorrachd nam Pùballan in Gaelic), the County of Peebles or Tweeddale was a county of Scotland. Its main town was Peebles, and it bordered Midlothian to the north, Selkirkshire to the east, Dumfriesshire to the south, and Lanarkshire to the west.
After the local government reorganisation of 1975 the use of the name Peeblesshire was discontinued, and the area was governed as the district of Tweeddale.
