Member's Comments on Brown Willy...

  • Nick Wakelam says...
  • Very good free CP to NW. Over Rough Tor first; ascending Brown Willy on good path from NW. Maybe not as impressive a top as Rough Tor; but quieter (as further for folks to walk from car park). Excellent views. Didn't find the letterbox; but didn't try very hard either. Continued south over Brownwilly Downs on good path to bag Butter's Tor.
    PS Highly recommend the Bettle & Chisel pub at Delabole - very good value B&B; good beer and friendly staff.
