Bodmin Moor Tors & Rocks Map

High Rock, on the west side of the Kilmar Tor ridge

Whilst Dartmoor is the place I visit more as it's closer and more convenient, I recently became hooked to Bodmin Moor too - another area of open moorland. It would seem that this stunning granite upland doesn't receive the recognition it deserves. This might be due to the fact it's not a national park but still, some of the tors here are grander than what Dartmoor has to offer and rock basins are plentiful here - especially on Bearah Tor! For more information about this lesser known wilderness, consider having a look at the Bodmin Moor a-droos Facebook Group.

All photos and descriptions are of my own work unless otherwise stated. Enjoy reading through each tor by just simply clicking or tapping on the desired outcrop. The information provided includes the bagging date and the blog post link.

Access


Luckily, many tors in the AONB (Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty) are open to the public all year round, but there are some exceptions:

Private Land


As I am new to Bodmin Moor, I am not aware of what's public land and what's not - I just go off the map and what's on the ground. Unlike Dartmoor where there are obvious walls and signs, Bodmin Moor has fences - and fences in abundance! What I understood from my first walk is that it is quite easy to wander into Private Land accidentally and because it is so much less walked than Dartmoor I doubt it has ever been an issue with landowners.

KEY:

       = Public - as far as I'm aware (bagged)

       = Public - as far as I'm aware (unbagged)

       = Possible Unnamed Tors (unbagged)

Multicoloured lines throughout the map indicate planned routes. Yes, I do know Helman Tor and its neighbouring unnamed tor aren't on Bodmin Moor, but they must also be visited.
