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 that need to be heeded:

Private Land


Unlike Dartmoor where there are usually 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 must stress that Bodmin Moor is not a National Park; it is not like Dartmoor and you should ensure that you are on either a public right of way, permissive path or open access land when you visit. Do not block gates, park considerately, respect the land and always follow the Countryside Code. I am currently in the process of finding out which tors are deemed to be on private land, and so do not assume that all tors on the below map are legally accessible without permission.

KEY:


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

       = Private (bagged)

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

       = Possible Unnamed Tors (unbagged)

Yes, I do know that Helman Tor and its neighbouring unnamed tor aren't on Bodmin Moor, but they must also be visited. Roche Rock also looks worthy of inclusion.
