Sharpitor (West Dartmoor)

The view from Sharpitor towards Leather Tor on Dartmoor

There are many Sharpitors and Sharp Tors on Dartmoor. It doesn’t take a great lep of imagination to realise that this is down to the shape. The Sharpitor on Walkhampton Common, West Dartmoor, must offer one of the best views on the moor. Not only that it is really simple to get to. Park up at the reasonable sized car park on the B3212 Princetown to Yelverton road and walk to 10 minute or so uphill to the tor. There is just a little price to pay in the form of scattered clitter to negotiate.

The views from the top towards Leather Tor, Burrator reservoir, and beyond are fantastic. It is a relatively easy walk to nip down to Leather Tor, then across to Peek Hill, and then back to your starting point.
