The Braid Burn is a stream 14 kilometres (8.7 mi) in length that flows through south and east Edinburgh. The area of the basin drained by the burn and its tributaries amounts to 30.5 square kilometres (11.8 sq mi). From its source near Bonaly in the Pentland Hills south-west of the city it flows in a generally north-easterly direction, skirting the Braid Hills to the east and south, via the Braid Valley Park, the Hermitage of Braid, Blackford Glen, Cameron Toll and Inch Park. On reaching Peffermill it is joined by the Pow Burn, and at Duddingston its name changes to the Figgate Burn. It flows on to enter the Firth of Forth at Portobello.
