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 535th highest summit in Ireland. Dho Bran is the most southerly summit and also the second most westerly in the Blackstairs Mountains area.

Definitely the end of the road as far as the Blackstairs walk goes. Lots of loose stone on the path makes it trick y going for walkers like me who prefer taking in the view to watching their footing. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/446/comment/1356/
