Rope Bridge

The rope bridge at Carrickarede near Ballintoy is a busy tourist attraction which is owned by the National Trust. It is a rope bridge spanning 20 metres that connects the mainland to a series of rocks. 

The bridge is reputed to have been built by salmon fishermen. There is still a fishermans cottage perched precariously on the rock face near the bridge complete with fishing boat which has to be lowered by hoist into the water.

The views along the coast at this point are absolutely stunning and on a fine day you can see Rathlin Island and Scotland from this vantage point.
