“A hill with a view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 10, 2013

This is the highest hill in the area, so the view are undisturbed and splendid. There's car park at the top with some narrow lanes leading to it. There are some other car parks just below the summit. Apart from the great views you can find remains of the mining heritage of this place with a chimney (ornamented!) being the most visible one. Place for people with lots of time to pass of walks or runs.

“I used to run here”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 20, 2013

this landmark is a true measure of my childhood pursuits from running cross country, exploring the industrial archaeology, natural history and walking. It is within easy reach of Callington on foot or by car from the Callington to Tavistock road. the views on a clear day are magnificent

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 2, 2013

went to kit hill and parked in the car park in the bottom. the walk was a little tougher then expected but being young and full of how the older generation say "full of spunk" i made it up to the top in good time. fantastic views defiantly worth a look!

“Views to die for, dogs will love you.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 28, 2013

This is a great place to take your dog for a walk. Depending on how energetic you feel, there are three car parks, one at the bottom, middle and top of the hill. The walking is all on prominent paths and once at the top near the tower there are plinths that explain the view, and distance to the prominent features. It is quite exposed, and therefore catches a lot of the bad weather so dress accordingly. Underfoot can be quite muddy but on the whole a great spot for the family and four legged friends.

If you do get caught out by the wether, try the cafe between the bottom and middle car park. Really cheap and good food.

“Amazing views!”

Amazing views. If you are here you must also try the Louis Tea Rooms and the Tamar Valley Donkey Sanctuary.
