The Kir (Albanian: Kir or Kiri) is a river in northern Albania that first flows south-southwest and then southwest out of the North Albanian Alps and enters a distributary of the Drin just below Shkodër.[2]

In the upper reaches the river cuts the "Canyon of the Kir" with dramatic cliffs. Just outside Shkodër, in Mes, the old stone Mes Bridge crosses the Kir.
