Great Coum is a hill in the Yorkshire Dales. Despite this, it 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.
