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 place in Ireland.

A great introduction to the mournes for beginners. Park at the Ott track, up to the col/wall then follow the tracks to the summit. You are then surrounded by higher summits, with great views. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/290/comment/678/
