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.

Yes, Doan is my favourite mountain. I've climbed the mountain 3 times and the view of the Silent Valley in the distance is breath taking. I've approached it from Carn once, and Slieve Loughshannagh twice. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/290/comment/4572/
