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.

Straw Poll, Is this the Mourne's real heart? Who else finds this their favourite of Down's pinnacle's? Answers on a postcard... Up here today for perhaps the fourth time, and found that there is another way besides the tried and tested from the Lough Shannagh side. We had come from the South off the Bann's Road after Slieve Muck, gone NE on the track which goes across the Shannagh river at the waterfall or thereabouts. The waterfall is a little gem and worth a few minutes of anyone's precious life. Anyway, to get back to the point we went on to Doan finding, by accident a track winding up from the SE. I couldn't believe that I'd never realised it's existence. DOH! to quote the great philosopher Homer (Simpson). I enjoyed this way up as one can do a little scrambling to add spice to the walk. Oh! and it makes a great stopping point for lunch, seating for at least fifty. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/290/comment/4477/
