Oddly, Nephin Beg is some distance from Nephin and there are other intervening mountains between them. Why it is so named is, therefore, something of a mystery, unless it too was a sanctuary. For origin of name, see Nephin. Walks: for a route to the summit from the SE, see Whilde & Simms, New Irish Walk Guide - West and North, 71.   Nephin Beg is the 244th highest summit in Ireland.

Following on from Nephin Beg South we took less than an hour to make it to the real summit of Nephin Beg. As already said the meteorological situation i.e. the drizzle/mist and the strong breeze driving this through our not so waterproof clothes meant we had to use our map/compass and God save us, the GPS! Unfortunately again I can't say what the views are like, needless to say we didn't hang about but went on towards Corslieve/Slieve Carr. We dropped off by the Western slope and then North along the ridge to Corslieve with the lke to our right. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/233/comment/5970/
