We wanted to do an awesome coastal walk today as the sun was set to shine all day. We opted for Durdle Door along the coastal path and it turned out to be a superb day.

Beautiful!!
I live in Poole and have done that walk a couple of times but parked at the viewpoint above Ringstead - Those hills are grueling, aren't they.
Well worth the effort though.[size=78%]  [/size]

They are very steep but as you say - well worth the effort!

Wow, those views are just breathtaking.  O0  Looks like a great walk.... And definitely a gruelling one - I felt "gruelled" just looking at the photos!  ;D

Glorious photos. The third to last is especially good. Looking forward to doing this path one day soon. Thinking maybe in the snow as I've seen some photos and Durdle Door looks absolutely magic covered in white. Plus there will be less people so win win!
