Slieve Gallion
In reply to Michael McA, a walk from Iniscarn to Crockandun Loughs is certainly feasable. There are parking opportunities at both locations - more limited at Iniscarn if gates are locked. The walk through the forest to the transmittters is fairly straight forward, following the track on the OS map and then the fence uphill. From here follow tarmac road and then off to the right along old bog tracks to the trig pillar and then down along Mobuy Wood to the road skirting the loughs. It could be navagtionally difficult in poor weather and perhaps not a great experience as the views are fantastic and make the walk. The ground from the trig pillar is quite wet and not too pleasant. There are not many people about to complain over access, the route is mostly mountain but would have to cross a few fields near the loughs. It would be possible to return to Iniscairn along the high and quiet road through "the gap" although would add an hour or two to the walk. If doing as an A to B should only take a few hours.

Summit Summary
Robber's Pass Hill: Minor heathery lump. Overcivilised and underwhelming.
Collaborative entry Last edit by: simon3 a week 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...

Cupidstown Hill: Enhance this with a visit to Oughterard

Yes, perhaps this is not a very noteworthy hill. Cupidstown and Saggart Hill represent largely forest topped outliers of the Dublin/Wicklow range split from higher summits to the East by the N81. ...
