Carrick-a-Rede

Carrick-a-Rede - Irish Landscapes
Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge, is now a famous tourist attraction near Ballintoy in Co. Antrim. The bridge links the north coast to the tiny island of Carrickarede. The bridge is 20m long and is 30 metres above the rocks below. Before the health and safety folk took it over, it used to have only one handrail and large gaps between the slats of wood. Initially, it was built by salmon fisherman who used the island and the fisherman's cottage situated on it. Since then, times have changed and it's now a tourist attraction run by the National Trust.
