Pilsdon Pen is a 277 metre (909 ft) hill in West Dorset, England, situated five miles west of Beaminster at the north end of the Marshwood Vale. It is one of the highest hills in Dorset and has panoramic views extending for many miles. It was bequeathed to the National Trust by the Pinney family in 1982.
The hill is a lower greensand Cretaceous outcrop situated amongst Jurassic strata of marl and clay, at the border between the chalk of South-East England and the granite of Devon and Cornwall.

The hill is topped by an Iron Age multivallate Durotrigian hill fort which was excavated in the 1960s by Peter Gelling of the University of Birmingham with his wife Margaret Gelling at the request of Michael Pinney. The remains of 14 roundhouses were uncovered near the centre of the hill fort.

Note from LLAP: I was trying to do a 360 but ran out of memory. I left the other memory card in the car!
