Hiking Up and Around Nephin Beg

Hiking Up and Around Nephin Beg

Here is a video I made of my hike up and around Nephin Beg mountain and the twin Scardaun Loughs last Saturday.

I hope the video gives you an idea of what this landscape is like.

Section 2 is from on the top of the 627 m mountain, with the camera facing directly west. The result is very strong wind, so you might like to tone down the volume just for that section.

    Thanks for posting this…you had a grand day for it, Scenery is as always wild and wonderful on the mountain. Have a good Christmas, don’t go ski-ing on Nephin!

    Cheers Brian,
    I had a really wonderful day alright. I just love the Nephin Begs as a whole and the Bangor Trail hiking way around them. Have a great 2010 !

    Thanks Barry for a view of 2 of “my mts.” which I look at everyday from the other side of Lough Feeagh. Do a lot of walking around here but haven’t got up there YET as I have mobility problems and bad balance. Did manage El Camino de Santiago for two months in 2007.!

    Eleanor (no spring chicken either!)

      Hi Eleanor,
      Thanks for the comment. Give me a shout if you ever want to go into the mountains without necessarily having to go too far or too high.

    I think you have put the want on me to go for a long walk. I’ve been thinking about tackeling them mountains for a while. Walked up Nephin quite a few times during my first year here but havent done much over the last year. Need to get new boots too.

      Out you get Ciarán – and no doubt you’ll take finer pictures than mine.
