A true Beacon of sight

Done as a double Great Rowbarrow and Dunkery Beacon. Take the road south out of Porlock and stop at Dunkery Gate. There is extensive parking there and than follow track to the summit of Dunkery Beacon. Dunkery Beacon is the highest point in Exmoor. After this summit follow track over to Great Rowbarrow and follow the tracks back to starting point as an elongated Linear walk. Great views in all directions from both peaks.
