This peak overlooks the top of the mountain road between Fofanny Dam and Attical. Ucht literally means 'breast', and applied to landscape it can translated as 'mountain-breast' or 'flank'. It is frequently found with mám, 'pass', e.g. Ucht Máma in Co. Clare or Mám Uchta in Co. Galway. It is possible in the name in question that ucht applies to the flank of mountain crossed by the road (or an earlier track) at its highest point. The top of Ott Mountain is only half a mile from this section of the road.   Ott Mountain is the 480th highest place in Ireland.

Starting from the Ott/Blue Quarry car park on the Moyad Road, there is a good track heading towards Ott. About halfway towards the summit, it veers towards the east, and I left the track there to continue in a southerly direction up the open hillside. All in all, its about a one kilometer walk from the car park to the summit cairn, with great views over the Fofanny and Spelga reservoirs. My first summit of six for the day, ending on Slieve Meelmore. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/461/comment/18668/
