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 was only a short and easy walk from Carn Mountain. Having seen sun and rain earlier in the day, we were briefly pelted with hailstones on the walk to the summit. A small cairn adorns the summit which provides yet another great viewing point for Spelga Dam. From the summit, we made our way down to the track and it was only a short walk across to a jammed Ott car-park. As stated elsewhere, Ott would be the perfect warm-up for an assault on some of the higher Mournes - easily accessible from Ott Car-park and then very convenient to the wall at Carn.
