The many Tors of Dartmoor

How many Tor are there on Dartmoor. There are around 170 Tors on Dartmoor but this number is inconclusive as views on Tors vary.

Tor – “a hill or rocky peak, whose origin is the Old English word torr, perhaps of a Celtic origin and related to Welsh tor ‘belly’ and Scottish Gaelic tórr ‘bulging hill‘

Her are a few images from our recent trip to Dartmoor.
