One of my favourite of the well known spots on Dartmoor is Hound Tor. The area is surrounded with legends and history, and it’s believed to have inspired Conan Doyle’s ‘Hounds of the Baskervilles’.
I’s a steady ascent from the small parking area and the view is wonderful.
If you have the energy, once you reach the top, you can drop down the other side to the ruins of a medieval village where you’ll be surrounded by ghosts from the past.
This is my entry for the weekly photo challenge of Ascend.

Beautiful . . . and so lovely to see a Dartmoor tor without cloud, rain or fog!
Such atmosphere and drama in these shots.
Wait for me! I’ve got the energy. Looks glorious Gilly. Happy Thursday xxx
What a lovely spot – any chance of a photo of the views Gilly?
Done, in a hurry, I’m off to a party 🙂
Ooh, party animal! Have fun 🙂
Looks like that would take quite a bit of work at “ascending.” But I bet it is worth it.
Lovely craggy views. Did you go and visit the ghosts?
What a great entry for the challenge, Gilly. I’m sure I’d be panting and might not make it to see the village.
Loved all of them, it’s difficult to pick one, Gilly. It seems to be a lovely place to visit.
More rocks! What a landscape. And a medieval village within reach. Do I want to be there????
Yes you do, and I’d happily take you there!
The view from this side is pretty good too 😃
