Fur Tor and Cut Hill - Dartmoor's at its Most Remote

So, today on my solo trek to Fur Tor and Cut Hill I walked into the most remote part of Dartmoor; the high plateau of peat bog that feeds the Tavy Head, Walkham Head, Cowsic Head and West Dart Head.

Did I mention it was boggy?

This trip to Fur Tor in particular now means that:

(1)  I have now walked up ALL the 155 tors on Dartmoor (named on OS map and publicly accessible) for my book.

(2)  I walked c 17km today, mostly over peat hags, bog and tussocks of purple moor grass.  Did I mention the bog?

(3)  I will walk like a spanner tomorrow.
