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.

A stoney track but a boggy end
Short Summary created by jackill,  3 Sep 2014
Park in the carpark on the Slievenaman Road at J28000 27863 A , room for 10 cars. Across the road use the stile to hop the wire fence and follow a good track to J28570 27085 B, then head south west across the bog for 250 meters to gain the summit on a small outcrop.
