Sugarloaves and Lam bays (Expand pics)
Lambay tour.
Some months ago we mentioned a Lambay Island visit. While not currently an MV listed summit, it will become one in the forthcoming revision of our data to include summits with 100m prominence.

Some 14 MViewers visited the place on Sat 27th July 2013. Visiting has only been permitted recently and we were only the 7th group to have ever gone there. The trip starts with a rib ride from Rogerstown Estuary on the mainland.

Much of the island is wild and populated by large numbers of guillemots. It and the summit make for an easy stroll. The entire island is owned by Lord Revelstoke, associated with Barings Bank in the UK. There are just a few buildings some of which can be visited.

Lambay shows up in photos taken from the Dublin or north Wicklow mountains towards the north, so I thought it would be interesting to include the reverse view in the photo at the top. The triangular summit central on the skyline is the Big Sugar Loaf, Co Wicklow, peeping over the top of Howth.
The lower part of the picture shows Howth with Lambay as a central smudge just above it in this late evening photo. Note the Mournes, including Slieve Donard to the left on the skyline.

Summit Summary
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...
