I have been to Watern Tor with my girlfriend a few times now and she always remarks how much this particular part of the tor resembles a ship with sails. I have to agree! Watern Tor really is very unusual not just in the structure of the two main tor groups but also that they are so isolated with almost no granite, broken or otherwise surrounding them. Their isolated nature and enigmatic shape makes Watern Tor one of the most photographic Tors on the moor. Be careful if you try to get here from Gidleigh though. You should know that Watern Tor is protected by a pretty serious boggy area if walking directly from around Scorhill. A better route is to come from Fernworty, cross the clapper bridge and come up the hill. You can ever take my preferred route to the Tor from Belstone via Steeperton Tor.
This photo was taken in the early morning on the 1st of October. The pink cirrus behind Watern Tor make a wonderfully complimentary background.
