The Rive Eden runs just to the north of the Parish of Falkland. It flows east to west, starting at Burnside, by the joining of the Carmore Burn and Beattie Burn, near the border with Perth & Kinross, then slowly across the Howe of Fife (until drained in the 18th and 19th centuries a flat and waterlogged basin) through Strathmiglo and Cupar to Guardbridge, where it enters the North Sea via the Eden Estuary.

Thr upper part of the river was once called the Miglo.[1]

Within the parish of Falkland, it is fed by the Falkland Burn (itself fed by the Maspie Burn and Arraty Burn) and the Freuchie Burn.
