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.

Gives its name to the range, though it is neither the highest nor the most attractive peak. It can be accessed from the Bangor Erris trail but is not linked to any other summit. A long day could permit Slieve Car and Nephinbeg to be taken either by walking above the Bangor trail or as an out and return from Srahmore at its southern end.Photo shows it as the flat topped summit at the R.H.ofthe picture, with Slieve Car 721m in the centre and Glenamong mountain and valley to the left.
