A walk along the east-west ridge of Ben Beg gives great views of the deeply cut valleys of Maumtrasna and Lough Nafooey with hints of the many summits surrounding the area. This summit is very seldom visited, yet this view is well worth having as well as the view east over Lough Mask.

One way to visit this summit is from the Drishaghaun valley, to the SE. There isn't much parking however one or two cars could be put on the public road near the bridge at L9782 5684 B. There is probably more than one way up that is unlikely to cause offence such as towards the graveyard shown on the 1:50k or at the most westerly point on the road. Comments welcome on these suggestions. Another way is to leave the road at L98120 57236 D which is over a rough field with an apparently deserted building on it. As always, if in doubt, ask.

The photo shows the north facing cliffs of Ben Beg. To the right on the skyline is Leenane Hill (618m) and the ridge below that is Rinavore (426m). Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/342/comment/2370/
