This walk follows a road and footpath to Swyre Head. On a clear day from the top of the tumulus at Swyre Head you can sea the Isle of Wight and the Isle of Portland. From Swyre Head you follow a zig-zag footpath down a steep hill then through some fields to the South West Coast Path at Rope Lake Head. The walk then follows the coast path to the top of Houns-tout Cliff where the walk turns inland to the car park.
From the south of Corfe Castle village on the A351 take the B3069 to Kingston. After the pub at Kingston turn right and continue down the road to the first car park - Houns-Tout.
