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.

Unlike the majority of people who hike in the Mournes, I enjoy mountains like Ott. Why? Because you can guarantee that no-one will be at the top when you reach it, and you'll have the whole mountain to yourself... unlike the high-traffic areas of Donard and such like. Park at the Blue Quarry/Ott Car park off the Slievenaman road, and approach from the Ott track. You can follow the track which branches off to the summit of Ott, but I prefer a different approach. My favourite way would be to leave the track half way up, and to head directly to the summit. This (believe it or not) provides some scrambling over steep ground to the summit, and is quite testing! Believe me, do not dismiss Ott or the other minor mountains in the Mournes. If you look at the mountain and try to figure out alternative ways of approaching it, which could make the hike more difficult or challenging, you can fully enjoy what these hills have to offer.
