Approached from Cove Mountain, Slieve Beg is a quick down-and-up. Even at the summit you feel almost cosy, with the taller peaks of Cove Mountain, Slieve Commedagh, and Slieve Donard towering over you. The photo shows the area around the highest point of Slieve Beg (with Slieve Bearnagh's tors in the background), not the more photogenic outcrop shown in tsunami's picture. I didn't fancy tackling The Devil's Coachroad with a twisted knee, so descent was via the col between Cove and Slieve Beg, following the stream down to the track which leads back to Carrick Little.
