Most interesting Coastline?

Just a random question;

If you were to launch from anywhere you wanted in the UK, where would it be? I think i'd quite like to head out to the sea forts!

My answer would be the Jurrassic Coast from Poole to Weymouth, I never get tired of it, very scenic and has a wild atmosphere about it, lots of bays, caves, wildlife etc. Going past St Aldhems Head (St Albans Head) on a misty day is something special. Durlston Head, Dancing Ledge, Whinspit, Kimmeridge, Warbarrow Bay, Man of War Bay, Lulworth, Durdle Door, Chapmans Pool etc must be one of the finest few miles of coast line to cruise along in the UK.

+ 1 we did all of the above last Sun it was awesome and the landscape variable from sea cliffs to beach, puffins and even a swim at Chapmans and Lulworth Cove. Shame the dolphins werent out but a fabulous trip non the less

Best boat/engine/coastline.

I can see a pattern here...

But I won't fight it and I'm going to say that I rather like Donegal as a launch location. It has pretty much everything - sheltered sea loughs, 1100km of wild coastline, lots of islands, 2000' cliffs, excellent wildlife*. If you launch from the north coast, you can be in Islay in 90 minutes opening up the entire west of Scotland**. From the south coast, we access the west of Ireland - another of Europe's wild and beautiful coastlines.

*Orca and Minke whales off our shores this week.

** My favourite cruising location.

Jurassic coast for me too, or anywhere from Brixham to Lands End.

Where you are and up north from you past Buckie is glorious I think, going from Buckie to Mcduff is a lovely passage West coast of Scotland is cool too. but its all good if you are on the Water

I've enjoyed the south west of England when I've been there but I have to give my vote to the west coast of Scotland.
