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 place in Ireland.

darrenf on Ott Mountain, 2010
by darrenf  7 Jan 2010
Set off on a simple ott-carn-loughshannagh-meelbeg route on January 3rd. The plan was to park at the small car park on the ott road at J 280 278 C, however it wasnt the ice or snow that put this plan to bed but rather the scores of cars and jeeps parked along the ott road enjoying the recent snowfalls. Instead we parked at the junction of the B27 and the Ott road at J 277 267 D and walked along the road to the aforementioned carpark. A stile at this carpark gives direct access to Ott mountain along a well established track. The track actually skirts around Ott but the top can easily be tackled using this track. Refer to Carn Mountain for rest of route. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/461/comment/4344/
