Dartmoor Tors height order

Here is a list of Dartmoor Tors and hills in height order. You’ll also find a map with all the tors/hills/rocks in the list marked with a pin to help you firstly know where it is and also know where surrounding places are to link them into a walk. As on the alphabetical list the OS grid reference is also included. The list may surprise a few in that there are 2 hills in the top 5, in fact there’s 4 in the top 10. As you scroll down you’ll see a fair number of hills and also rocks, this list is pretty much a complete effort of all that is on Dartmoor, worthy of climbing. With the help of Ken Ringwood’s fine book and a few other lists out there on the internet. There are a few more lesser tops which I haven’t included, most of these are on private land or deep in woodlands making the final summit a dull spot or a place you cannot walk. Each tor/hill/rock below (there’s 500 of them!) has a link to a separate page giving a bit more info about that tor, such as its height and grid reference, how to get there, some photos and whether to be wary of any military firing ranges. I have also given each tor a mark out of 10, this is based on the view of and from the tor, alongside the walk to get there, isolation and general feeling of the place, it will be my choice and for no reason I might have two tors 100 metres apart with different scores, but that’s my choice!

The full list of outcrops on Dartmoor seems to be ever increasing, such that I have had 3 goes at a list already. For me this is becoming a bit daft and I’ve taken to be selective of the rocky outcrops and the ones included below, that I have climbed, are all fine places to spend some time and if I find any more I will keep adding them. You can call these the Foster’s 500 Tor list (I figure if Alfred can have his list of Wainwrights then I’m having mine!!). There are 500 of them so happy walking!
