The gites in Saint Raphael must be shutting up for the winter. Beautiful people are pouring out into the Mournes. Confident young women in Versace jeans rolled to the knees, uniform underplayed sunglasses slotted into their Mediterranean (coloured) hair; bulky young blokes clean-shaven and head stubble, wind-surf biceps and white-rimmed mirror shades. Both wafting Chanel. Her from threatened old money, him from high-on-the-hog new. I feel like rough trade in this milieu. Yet I am the epitome of Munro chic. Amongst the Scottish Munro-istes of which I was one, there are rules - an etiquette as follows. Ronhill trackies - no, not Joe Bloggs trackies or Super Valu trackies - only Ronhill - the blue ones with the red piping. So that’s half the population lost up here. Scarpas, in those days “Attacks”. An odd and bullet-proof day sack. Lowe Alpine Jacket or bottom-end Berghaus. Top-end Berghaus allowed, if you actually DID winter in Chamonix as DID your parents as DID your grandparants - ie not on the cheap midweek break with free “I heart Chamonix” carrier bag. Gaiters on except in the highest of high summers. And most important, truculent in all social encounters. What on earth has happened? Twelve year olds in three quarter length cargoes with sharks teeth and wrap-rounds. Ladies tops from the Bloomfield Road (that’s like Browne Thomas but dearer). White trainers. Jewellery. Gucci watches. People saying “Good Morning”. It’s all gone wrong. Incidentally, in the Scottish Munros, it is also correct form always to keep your hands in your pockets and only to take them out if ropes are involved. This means in the unlikely event that you trip, you will knock all your front teeth out and look even harder. C’mon rainbow hair - propriety is all!

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. ...

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...
