Alright Purth - there is no “here in Scotland”. This is “here in Ireland”. So wheesht for a minute and I shall appraise you of the “why”. “Why” is because despite this being but a wee island, every little different bit of it is proudly possessed and proudly different. Ireland is not a sweetie shop for Munro baggers. The Reeks are completely unlike the Mournes which are completely unlike Donegal which are completely unlike Wicklow and on and on. Take a run out from North East to South West and you will understand the misery of our ancestor adventurers - the journey is endless and enroute a million different cultures and landscapes. And the various Tourist Boards revel in it, sell it and subsist on it. How am I so assured of all this? Because I was once you and cared not a BLX for some difference in history or culture between Arrochar and Crieff, Crianlarich and Fort William, Killin and Ballachulish. But I sure bagged some Munros. “Why aren’t the Reeks in the Killarney National Park?” But they built Edinburgh Castle beside the station - does that not balance things out? Sorry a bit rough with you Purth, but “disgrace” is what it is not.
