Lowery Tor

Lowery Tor on the southern slopes of Peek Hill, DartmoorQuarry near Lowery Tor, Dartmoor. Is this the remains of the tor?

Lowery Tor is on the southern slopes of Peek Hill. It isn’t obvious from the top of the hill but is found after a short walk down towards Burrator reservoir. It is a lovely spot which is easily accessible.

The views in all directions are excellent, especially down towards the tor and over to the distant Sheeps Tor. The views east towards Leather Tor and Sharpitor are also good.

Even though you can reach this tor from the north or the south, the bests way is surely from the north as there is less climbing involved. Just park in one of the car parks off the B3212, either near Sharpitor or Peek Hill and take the short stroll up/around Peek Hill.
