The River Eden is a river in Fifemarker in Scotlandmarker, and is Fife's other principal river, along with the Leven. It is nearly 30 miles (48 kilometres) long and has a fall of around 90 metres (295 feet). It flows from Burnside, near the border with Perth & Kinross, across the Howe of Fife and through the market town of Cuparmarker to Guardbridgemarker, where it enters the North Seamarker via the Eden Estuary, an important conservation area for wading birds and a nature reserve. The river holds a good stock of wild brown trout and hosts a fair run of sea trout and salmon.

In previous centuries, its water was used to power mills on its banks, and a paper mill remains at Guardbridge to this day.

Firth of Taymarker and Eden Estuary was designated a Ramsar site on July 28, 2000.

Both estuaries play host to a variety of recreational activities. The Eden estuary, being significantly smaller than the Tay has few boating opportunities but is an important recreation site for birdwatchers and naturalists, foreshore shellfish collectors, fishing enthusiasts and wildfowlers. As the estuary is a Local Nature Reserve (LNR), permitted activities are managed via byelaws set by Angus Council. Some activities, such as wildfowling, are only permitted if in possession of a permit when inside an LNR. This helps to control shooting pressure and to confirm that hunting bags are sustainable. Permits, available from Angus council, are open to locals and visitors alike. Permits are not required to fish or hunt on foreshore outside byelaw protected areas.
