Travel guide to Dartmoor National Park

In global - or even UK national - terms, Dartmoor is not very high and its most picturesque parts are not necessarily its highest. However it is clearly an upland area and it provides a major area for outcrops of granite boulders above the long streches of bracken, heather and bog.

These outcrops are called 'tors' on Dartmoor. They vary considerably in appearance, ease of access and ease of reaching the top. The hardest and one of the most picturesque is Vixen Tor, which includes a scramble up a chimney at the top. The easiest of the scenic tops is that of Pew Tor, where a car road runs near to the top. This in no way detracts from the immediate beauty of the tor's outcrops or the distant views from it and it should be visited by all except the sverely disadvantaged to give a feeling for Dartmoor. Sheepstor and Hay Tor are other wonderful spots.
The moor alsp excels in the quality and quantity of its Bronze Age remains; stone circles, stone rows and cromlechs [dolmens]. [edit text]  [editors]
