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.

The photos from the top of Doan on this site are fabulous! We walked up Doan today – our first trip to the Mournes this spring - having spent most of the winter months in the isolated expanse of the Sperrins, I was surprised at the Huge (relatively speaking!) crowds on this route. It was busy to say the least. While we were on the summit I counted about 17 people. Most of them teenagers! We parked at the Ott car park and followed the fore-mentioned Ott track to the col between Slieve Loughshannagh and Carn, took the track down hill around Lough Shannagh and then up the steep slope of Doan. Now, if I was to do it again – I would take a left at the style and follow the track that traverses Slieve Loughshannagh – that way you keep your height – then at GR 296269 A, start moving up the slope. It’s a gentler slope and has a nice track to the top! We also did Slieve loughshannagh on the way back to car. So, far – it’s the gentlest walk I’ve done in the Mournes, but, like everyone, has some of the best views. This picture is of me on the summit with Lough Shannagh in the background. I had a brilliant one of silent valley but this is already well documented on this site Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/290/comment/2644/
