New maps now available for Wicklow Hills.
As some of you may be aware, I've recently published two new maps for the Wicklow Hills. These are the continuation of our series which we started last year with the well received Dublin & North Wicklow Mountains. The two new maps are Wicklow Mountains West (covering roughly from Sally Gap to Wicklow Gap) and Lugnaquilla & Glendalough (covering roughly from Wicklow Gap to Aughavannagh). Both are printed at 1:30,000 scale and on good quality water resistant 120gsm Pretex paper.

Extensive fieldwork on foot and by bike in 2009/2010 has yielded much detail of use to walkers - the sort of detail you can't map by sitting in an office using remote sensing and imagery. I have also undertaken a thorough examination of the placenames of the uplands, looking at multiple sources and talking to hill farmers in the various valleys. In general, I have used various forms of a name to reflect the diversity of spelling but I have also chosen to emphasise the versions that are known and still used locally in preference to some of the OS names. In doing so, I hope to present a more complete record of the area. Further detail on this aspect at www.eastwestmapping.ie/placenames.html

The new maps retail at the same price as our first sheet and can be purchased at www.eastwestmapping.ie or through the specialist outdoor shops/ Eason's etc. Stock will also be found in Laragh/ Glendalough and Blessington Tourist Office. regards and happy walking (&map reading!),

Robber's Pass Hill: Minor heathery lump. Overcivilised and underwhelming.
Collaborative entry Last edit by: simon3 4 days ago.
This oddly named hill is more a very minor heathery bump incorporated into the system of tracks laid out by the Wicklow Mountains National Park. It can be reached from any of the western car-parks...
