Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge

Spanning a chasm some eighty feet deep is the famous Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge, it’s construction once consisted of a single rope hand rail and widely spaced slats which the fishermen would traverse across with salmon caught off the island. Although no-one has ever been injured falling off the old bridge, there have been many instances of visitors being unable to face the return walk back across the bridge.
