Also known as Cnoc Bhaile Uí Shé [OSI], 'hill of Baile Uí Shé', from Ballyhea(-bought) townland. The English form Ballysitteragh could be from Baile Suiteoireach, 'the townland of the camp/barracks', but the circumstances of its naming are unclear. Coumhenry, Coumgraig and Coumthrive are hollows below the mountain on the N. side. Previously Ballysitteragh in MV.   An Scraig is the 250th highest place in Ireland.

Coming down from the Brandon ridge at Fallaghnamara ,heading for 623m Q459 078 C , with An Scraig just right of centre. The rough track that is the end of the Pilgrims Route makes is way up to the gap past An Loch Dubh and down the Dingle side to Na Gleanna Thuaidh. Loch na mBan can be seen in the foreground with a fairly well defined track to the left which isn't marked on the map but winds is way up from the valley floor to the ridge over Loch the mBan.
