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.

Ott (seen rising above the wall) is a hill everyone has heard about, but not many have actually climbed! Staying true to form, there were no other wakers to be found on it's summit last weekend. In their place however were a couple of eejits on quad bikes. From the pic you can see the extent of the snowfall in the hills last week. The snow had drifted so high in parts that it completely covered the wall on both sides, so you could effectively walk over the wall! I found this highly amusing.
