Driesh (Gaelic: Dris) is a mountain located in the Grampians of Scotland. Apart from Mount Keen (939 m/3,080 ft), it is the most easterly of the Munro peaks.

Located a few miles north of the village of Kirriemuir in Angus, the closeness of Driesh to the city of Dundee makes it a popular Munro with locals; in many ways making it the Dundonian equivalent to Ben Lomond near Glasgow.
