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 245th highest place in Ireland.

Remote or Not

Yes........This part of Mayo is remote or is it ...............as you can drive a normal road vehicle to F9410907375 Z where there is ample parking and no restrictions on entry or exit......see my comment on Aroher Hill ..sure makes Nephin Beg S Top and Nephin Beg an easy up and down.
