Drest (Scottish Gaelic: Drust) was king of the Picts from before 845 to 848, a rival of Kenneth MacAlpin (Cináed mac Ailpín). According to the Pictish Chronicle, he was the son of Uurad.

The myth of MacAlpin's Treason was attached to a king named Drest, and it may be this king who is intended. He was the last king of the Picts.
