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. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/461/
