Annandale and Eskdale lies in the east of Dumfries and Galloway and is bordered by the Nithsdale locality in the west, South Lanarkshire in the north, Scottish Borders in the east and Cumbria in the south. Most of its southern boundary is made up of the Solway Firth coastline. Two main rivers, the River Annan and the River Esk, run through the area and drain into the Solway Firth. The Southern Uplands form the northern boundary. Covering 156,286 hectares, Annandale and Eskdale accounts for a total of a quarter of the total area of Dumfries and Galloway.
