Cornwall's Highest Point
by Fergalh  20 Oct 2020
Park to the North West at a car park a short drive from Camelford. Done as a double with Rough Tor and Brown Willy (Cornwall's Highest point) There is a grassy track to Rough Tor followed by a roughish long Grass route to Brown Willy which is not as interesting. No Particular difficulty in climbing or route finding although it is a roughly 7 km round trip for both. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/B2881/comment/21000/
