Kirriereoch Hill is a hill in the Range of the Awful Hand in the Southern Uplands of southern Scotland. It lies on the border of the old counties of Ayrshire and Kirkcudbrightshire, or the modern regions of Dumfries and Galloway and South Ayrshire. Kirriereoch Hill was formerly classified as a Corbett and Marilyn but has now been deleted from these lists due to not achieving the 150m prominence criterion.
