There is no record of an actual fort here, so the name probably comes from the imagined resemblence of the craggy summit to a fortress. For origin of name, see PNNI for info on Maol Chobha.   Doan is the 310th highest summit in Ireland.

Doan is a lovely mountain to walk up to. From Meelbeg find a track and walk over some strangely flat slabs on stone and sand and on up to Doan on its own. Absolutely beautiful panoramic views at the top including looking over to the reservoir as can be seen from the picture. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/290/comment/2016/
