Member's Comments on Kilmar Tor...

  • Nick Wakelam says...
  • Parked in small car park at end of minor road to NNE. Good wide track south along wall then to ridge to east of the top. Lots of scrambling to get to the trig and summit. Probably minimise scrambling and ascent by approaching the top from the south (from remains of a hut). Great hill; if only all HuMPs were this good.
