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 - my favourite mountain. A glorious little gem in the heart of Mourne, often (unfairly) overlooked by those more drawn towards her older brothers and sisters. I have two previous contributions on Doan, but couldn't resist posting this pic of her wearing her winter coat. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/290/comment/3584/
