Oddly enough, despite the adjective beag ('small'), it is actually higher than Slieve Meelmore, so perhaps it is a question of bulk rather than height.   Slieve Meelbeg is the 111th highest place in Ireland.

From Slieve Loughshannagh Meelbeg is an obvious extension. Slieve Meelbeg offers great views across to Fofanny Dam, Lough Shannagh, Blue Lough and across the entire mourne range. Yes yes it could be said that this is a somewhat mediocre summit but given the views mentioned, its easy access and scope for further walk extenions in almost every direction i think this is a super little summit! Ok, maybe the snow conditions on the day gave me a different perspective. From the summit we returned to the stile at the coll between Meelbeg and Loughshannagh and from here headed directly for the Ott road carpark. A short skip along the Ott road brought us safely back to our start position. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/103/comment/4347/
