Hunters Tor (Drewsteignton)

This is a tor that sits below Castle Drogo and above the Teign valley, with good views along the valley to Sharp Tor and the other way out to the Devon countryside. Its a very simple tor to get to with the well marked Hunters path from Castle Drogo the obvious route. Tis tor isn’t at a particularly high height, however its position above the valley gives it a fine and lofty vista, with the tor rocks jutting out on a narrowing ledge. There are no military firing ranges near here.
