The Ettrick Water is a river in Ettrick, by the village of Ettrickbridge and the historic town of Selkirk, in the Scottish Borders area of Scotland.

The water, a tributary of the River Tweed, is known also as the River Ettrick, often locally known as Wild Ettrick (though that title refers more correctly to the Ettrick Forest and the Ettrick Valley), and it flows through the village, and its flood plain, the Ettrick Marshes. It is the second fastest rising river in Scotland.
