Re: Nephin
Thanks Simon, I thought the same. It's interesting how we sometimes use man made, rather than natural, features to delineate mountain ranges. Geologically looking at a map I would be inclined to say that the range of hills stretching from Claggan Mtn in the west to Nephin in the east is all one. But the stretch of the Nephin Begs from Claggan Mtn to Slieve Carr (or even Knocklettercurss) would seem to form one logical, complete and whole mountain range — perhaps mainly because there's no road cutting them apart at any point. Birreencorragh to the east seems to be considered part of the Nephin Begs, but again because it's separated by a road from the main range, it's a bit of an outlier — you couldn't really include it in a complete ridge walk. Also the names people have given these hills seem to play a part in how categorise them — Nephin Mór is distinct from the Nephin Begs, etc. Anyways, I'll stop waffling now.

Nothing much to add to the comments already. Drove most of the way up from the North side of the hill to within 450 metres of the trig point. Nothing to recommend to anybody who is looking to get ...
