Great Rough Tor

This is a large and impressive granite tor residing in the Roughtor Plantation.

Its distinctive granite stacks dominate the visitor from below.

As with all of the tors in this area, straying from the logging tracks should be taken with care, and you should be attentive with your footing, especially around the mines in the north-east of the plantation.
