Aller Brook Tor

This is a small scattering of rocks sitting above the Holne Woods and the River Dart, opposite to Vag Hill. It is a short walk away from Venford Reservoir which sits to the south east. The views across to Combestone Tor are good as are those over the Dart valley to Vag Hill. The ground behind the outcrop rises and to the south there is very little in the way of a view. The easiest way to get here is from Venford Reservoir and following the Aller Brook which runs about 50 metres above Aller Brook Outcrop.
