This peak overlooks the top of the mountain road between Fofanny Dam and Attical. Ucht literally means 'breast', and applied to landscape it can translated as 'mountain-breast' or 'flank'. It is frequently found with mám, 'pass', e.g. Ucht Máma in Co. Clare or Mám Uchta in Co. Galway. It is possible in the name in question that ucht applies to the flank of mountain crossed by the road (or an earlier track) at its highest point. The top of Ott Mountain is only half a mile from this section of the road.   Ott Mountain is the 480th highest place in Ireland.

NICKY on Ott Mountain, 2007
by NICKY  20 Mar 2007
We had the pleasure of free time to do a lovely walk in the Mournes on 30th December 2006. Our route took us from the car park below Slievenamuck, up the Ott track, Ott mountain, Carn mountain and finally Slieve Muck down to the car park south of Spelga Dam. This was a wonderful walk. The cloud formations were very dramatic, more so as the walk progressed. For our start Ott mountain is not a distinctive peak but it was a great stepping stone to the higher peaks. When doing this walk your lungs and legs gradually strengthen which is great for the not so fit! I would recommend this route for those of you that are pressed for time but want dramatic views (Slieve Muck)! Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/461/comment/2643/
