Great Coum is a hill in the Yorkshire Dales. Despite this it actually lies in Cumbria.

Its neighbours include Crag Hill, Green Hill and Gragareth.

It can be ascended from Dent to the north, or a considerable head start can be achieved by taking the minor road to White Shaw Moss (SD723821) and starting from there, a trick which leaves the walker with about two and a half miles to walk but only seven hundred feet to climb.
