This may be soft Dorset countryside, not Suilven NC1518 : View from Suilven, NC1518 : Suilven, Caisteal Liath, NW buttress but nonetheless I would not like to lose my footing. My guess is that I was standing on about the 90m contour, and the drop to the railway line could be 75m. The low ground at the immediate foot of the hill is in SY9682, but beyond that you are in SY9582.

The view is north-westward, and the Swanage Railway line is probably the most eye-catching feature. Notice that the track-bed is wider than needed for the present-day single track. Norden station is visible, and the storage sidings beyond.
