Máire MacNeill, discussing the customs associated with Caher Roe's Den, reports: Lesser piles along the top of the mountain-ridge are called after Fionn's dog, Bran, which is said to have leaped from one pile to another (MacNeill, 225). Bran Scultair and the nearby Dho Bran appear to be two such names, though their precise meaning is not clear.   Dho Bran is the 536th highest place in Ireland. Dho Bran is the most southerly summit and also the second most westerly in the Blackstairs Mountains area.

There is a mast at the top and it is possible to drive to this using forest tracks. Alternatively
you can start at GR S 809 410 C about a mile and a half from Rathnure - there is parking for
about 2 cars next to a bridge. From here you can follow forest tracks up to the col between
Blackstairs and Carrigalachan and from here follow the ridge in a roughly southerly direction
to Bran Scultair. From there either retrace your steps or follow forest tracks back to the start.

I found OS 68 to be quite accurate regarding depiction of tracks. Navigation is fairly easy, the trickiest part is probably finding the start. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/446/comment/968/
