7 Tors around the roof of Devon

A walk to prepare for a week in the Lake District which is coming up at the start of August. Starting from a new place for me, beside Okehampton Camp, I made from Yes Tor taking in a couple of other tors on the way. Once at High Willhays I extended the walk down to Lints Tor and back via Dinger Tor. Cows seemed to be everywhere and not being my favourite animal, plenty of deviations were needed!!
