There is no record of an actual fort here, so the name probably comes from the imagined resemblence of the craggy summit to a fortress. For origin of name, see PNNI for info on Maol Chobha.   Doan is the 310th highest place in Ireland.

Climbed this old favourite again yesterday (17.09.06) and the comments for it are entirely accurate. Wonderful panorama of the Mournes right from the very centre of the range. Great views over the Silent Valley and Lough Shannagh and further south over Carlingford Lough and the coast down towards Dublin. One of the party (who shall remain nameless - but he knows who I mean) claimed to be able to see the Sugarloaf and imagined walkers on it looking back at us! Still, I could see Lambey Island clearly enough. Good day out all round. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/290/comment/2497/

Heading for Ben Crom Dam from Slieve Meelbeg on our Seven Seven route, Doan stands proudly, at 594 metres, and from our position on a 325 contour the mountain is impressive as shown in the photo attached, being approx. 270 metres above us. The Ben Crom river can be seen in the foreground. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/290/comment/2511/

Excellent point to view the ring of the Mournes. Walked up the Ott track on a lovely sunny day. Views from the top were spectaculor all the way to Dublin Bay. Good introduction to the mournes and a quick walk for those in a hurry. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/290/comment/934/

One of the best 360deg views in the Mournes. You get a great reward for little effort. Surrounded by higher peaks in a vast bowl created by the high Mournes a place apart. One word of warning, the approach from the Ott Mountain Car Park can be VERY boggy for some time after wet weather. I noticed that an information board at Banns Road car park gives an alternative translation of Doan as “dubhan” : a Hook. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/290/comment/944/

There is a drier, gentler approach from the Bann Road , along the East shore of Lough Shanna, over the outlet stream and up Doan. There is a shelter at the stream. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/290/comment/1415/
