Harrumph.
Dhmiriam, I am undone. There was I thinking a tent, a sleeping bag and a few biscuits and I'm OK wandering deviceless in Connemara. However beyond the Maamturks lies wilderness (or at least marginal farmlands) so yeah, sounds totally unsafe. Good job you didn't know I never carry a whistle or a first-aid kit. It runs in the family, I suppose. My father was an apprentice engineer in Glasgow in 1943 and spent his weekends wandering the Arrochar Alps with neither map nor compass. After he missed one Monday, being reluctant to return in perfect weather, a Trade union committee fined him for "endangering the war effort", a verdict I feel dhmiriam would heartily endorse. My father, stung by criticism, went off and joined the RAF. I, by contrast, will simply go via Aer Arann to Galway and behave in a flighty manner in the Pins.

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...
