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 summit in Ireland.

A good light intro to the Mournes, nice to see it has been given recognition in Mountainviews. Easy access to the summit from the track of the same name off Slievenaman Road, but a much more enjoyable and testing walk is to tackle it along the route in the picture following the Ulster way from Fofanny Dam. Once summited, drop down to the Mourne Wall and decide to tackle Carn and Muck in one direction, Loughshannagh and the Meels in another or the Silent Valley includin Doan and Ben Crom.
