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.

We did this route on the 19/08/2020 during Storm Ellen, not the best day to do so.

We parked up north, and started following a path, that disappeared, continued following along the gap where the river is born till half of it, where we tried to find the actual path till we found it. Weather was that bad we rush and completed the horseshoe as fast as we could. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/233/comment/23478/
