HMS Carstairs was a Hunt-class minesweeper of the Royal Navy from World War I. She was originally to be named Cawsand, but this was changed to avoid any conflict between the vessel name and a coastal location.
On 4 January 1924 she was renamed HMS Dryad, but reverted to Carstairs on 15 August 1924.
