Fur tor is a spectacular Granite tor located on Northern Dartmoor. Fur tor was originally called Vur Tor and is also known, especially to local walkers as the Queen of the moor. On a clear day there are fantastic views to the West and North. On the very top of the tor there are Rock Basins - formed by erosion.
Be aware that Fur tor sits within the Okehampton live firing range.
