Driesh - DESCRIPTION

Driesh and its neighbour Mayar are the most southern Munros in this region and sit at opposite ends of a long plateau separating Glen Clova to the north and Glen Prosen to the south. The northern face of Driesh is its most impressive face. These slopes are steep and craggy. Driesh has 2 main ridges, the SW ridge leads to a skinny col known as "The Shank" and the rest of the summit plateau. Mayar sits at the western end of this plateau. The NE runs to a top known as The Scorrie before dropping sharply to Glen Doll. The eastern side of this ridge has some superb corries in particular Winter Corrie, which offers some superb climbing routes and is a fantastic site from the road through Glen Clova.

Most people ascend Driesh and Mayar via the Shank and continue to both summits from there. There is easy access from the north at Glen Doll lodge and paths lead all the way to the summits.
