Rough Tor

Rocky Outcrop


this is pronoucned "ro-aw" Tor in case you are asking for directions, I used to come here as a child with my hippy pairents.
Theres a few spots on the top of the Tor that are bucket shaped, I don't know how, I doubt weathering or glacial movements could cause such a thing, but if you dont mind sitting on some litchen, they make excellent seats!

Theres no hotels or such like around this area, its dead on Bodmin Moor. There is a car park.

At the top is a little black post, placed by OS I think.

I'm going from memory here, as I live on the other side of the planet these days, but Roaw Tor is certainly a special place, when the wind kicks up on an autumns evening, looking up at the steadily brightening stars, you can feel like youre the only thing alive, on this barren outcrop of granite.
