3 Combestone Tor
Arguably the most accessible tor on Dartmoor, being just a 50m walk from the car park. However, it boasts superb views of the Dart Valley below. This is a fantastic choice for an easy dawn shoot or when the weather is quickly changing and you don't want to stray too far from the shelter of your car.
4. Irishman’s Wall at Belstone
This tumbling stonewall, called Irishman’s Wall, stretches over the moor and provides a nice lead-in line. You will notice close by a very obvious outcrop, known locally as Rabbit Rock. The outcrop can photograph well when included in a composition with Irishman’s Wall in the foreground. However, there is no shortage of viewpoints up here and this is a tor worthwhile of multiple visits throughout different seasons.
5. Brat Tor and Widgery Cross
This tor is instantly recognisable thanks to the large granite cross that sits upon its summit – known as the Widgery Cross. The walk is steep in places, but once you have climbed to the top, consider exploring nearby Hare Tor, Arms Tor and Doe Tor too.
6. Arms Tor
Arms Tor is surrounded by more illustrious neighbours with Great Links Tor to the east and Brat Tor to the south, Arms Tor can easily be overlooked. It is worth a visit for the superb far-reaching views stretching for miles and miles.
7. Shaugh Prior
A must-visit location for togs is Shaugh Prior (found on the south-western edge of the moors). Here, the River Meavy and Plym meet on their route toward the sea at Plymouth. You don’t need to walk far before the picture potential is obvious. The rivers tumble over boulder-strewn rocks, while Shaugh Bridge is an attractive 17th Century stone bridge.
