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 541st highest summit in Ireland. Dho Bran is the most southerly summit and also the second most westerly in the Blackstairs Mountains area.

To access the road to the summit, drive to S758364 A. This is the start of the road to the summit, which begins just after the Piano Gallery (???). The main road swings to the left, ours goes straight. Despite being marked as a track, its actually in great nick for an unsealed road and is more than suitable for an ordinary car. There is a barrier near the bottom so beware being locked up on the Blackstairs for the night! You can park the car anywhere, depending on how much work you want to do. I parked at S784393 B and took the path to the summit of Ballycrinnigan Rock, with its summit cross and Millenium Altar. From there its a straightforward stroll to the top of Bran Scultair with its mast and strangely perched trig point. The views over Carlow and to Brandon are superb especially when you do not have to break sweat to get there! Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/446/comment/3081/
