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 452nd highest place in Ireland.

wicklore on Ott Mountain, 2008

Ott would be the first hill in what I hoped would be a good long day’s walking. I parked at the Blue Quarry/Ott carpark (J 280 279 A) and followed the Ott track SE. It was quite wet and boggy in places. After a few hundred metres I left the track and turned right uphill. Still warming up I found the ground and incline a little tough. However the summit arrived quickly and so did the cloud that I knew would follow me on and off all day. Ott provided a great warm up and, as Alex92 had previously said, there was no one else climbing it. Everyone else seemed to be skirting it on their way elsewhere. The cloud was engulfing me and clearing just as quickly, providing brief ethereal glimpses of Carn Mountain, Butter Mountain and the Spelga Dam. A black bag of rubbish east of the summit spoiled things somewhat-it was ripped and I could see a disposable barbecue, beer cans and food wrappers. Someone had carefully bagged up their rubbish before abandoning it on the Mountain. I wonder what they thought would happen to that bag-do the bin men drive their trucks up here?! I then left Ott and headed for Slieve Loughshannagh. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/461/comment/3381/
