Lints Tor Hollow Rocks

A small set of rocks to the east of Lints Tor. The area was named by Eric Hemery who describes the scene in High Dartmoor; "Marshy ground lies south of Dinger Tor, and a peat pool in its midst is seen from high ground reflecting the sky. The south-west portion of the marsh gives rise to several streamlets, all feeders of Lints Tor Brook. The headmire of the swift stream lies in a stony hollow at the south-east foot of Lints Tor, which I have called 'Lints Tor Hollow'."

From a distance, the outcrop, on the slope of a spur separating the streamlets, is quite distinctive. But venture into the hollow and it is less impressive, with only a couple of small emergent outcrops distinguishable from clitter.

Whilst it is certainly not as grand, it is worth a diversion when visiting Lints Tor.
