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.

One of my favourite views in the Mournes and so easy to reach. You really get the sense of ruling a kingdom from this point looking over the calm waters of the Silent Valley Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/290/comment/1199/
