The name Mount Alto is quite recent and it seems likely that it was given by the Tighe family, local landowners whose residence was at Woodstock House near Inistioge, at the foot of the hill. Máire MacNeill (234) suggests that Sceachánach is likely to have been an earlier name for this hill. This name is interpreted as 'abounding in whitethorns' by Eoghan Ó Ceallaigh [CF, 31], although he makes no link with Mount Alto.
Mount Alto is the 1212th highest place in Ireland. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/977/
