Robert Lloyd Praeger [The Way that I Went] said of the Nephin Begs “Where else even in Ireland will you find 200 square miles which is houseless and roadless – nothing but brown heather spreading as far as the eye can see, and rising along a kind of central back-bone into high bare hills breaking down here and there in rocky scarps, with the Atlantic winds singing along their slopes? I confess I find such a place not lonely or depressing by inspiriting.” Could any of us attempt to put it better?

Our photo, taken from near the top of Corranabinnia SW Top, shows much of the bare bog. The nearer water is Lough Corranabinnia, while further there is the west end of the remote double lake, over 1 km in length, that is Corryloughaphill Lough, with the slopes of Glennamong rising immediately beyond it. On the skyline at the right is Nephin Beg. Centrally, just touching the skyline is that most unusually named mountain “Slieve Alp” (329m).

One note of navigational caution. The OS 1:50k shows a spot height 681. This is not the highest point on the ridge which is around 370m to the east. As of May 2007 there is no cairn or other mark at the highest point. If you mistake this in mist you could go seriously wrong for example in attempting to get onto the southern ridge.
