Máire MacNeill, discussing the customs associated with Caher Roe's Den, reports: Lesser piles along the top of the mountain-ridge are called after Fionn's dog, Bran, which is said to have leaped from one pile to another (MacNeill, 225). Bran Scultair and the nearby Dho Bran appear to be two such names, though their precise meaning is not clear.   Dho Bran is the 539th highest place in Ireland. Dho Bran is the most southerly summit and also the second most westerly in the Blackstairs Mountains area.

Started at GR 783 377 A and climbed uphill through forest until we reached forest tracks, we followed forest tracks to summit. Lots of trees of the same type to be seen on the way up. Graet view of Brandon hill to be seen to the west at summit. There is a 15ft drop or so to one side of the trig, care should be taken. We retraced back a different forest track. I would try to stick to the clear ridge area to the west of the forest if i was going again. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/446/comment/1353/
