Discover Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge United Kingdom

For a truly unique experience, head to Ballycastle and take a short stroll along the scenic coastal path, where you will discover why the area has attracted much scientific interest. The path will lead you to the Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge, initially installed by fisherman (you may notice a small shack on the island) an experience unto itself. If you have the stomach for it, dare to tiptoe across the bridge on a windy day, whilst trying to ignore the 23 metres-deep chasm over which it stretches. You'll be glad to know that what was formerly a single-rope handrail has been replaced by two, thanks to the kind people at the National Trust. If you manage to make it across, Carrick Island is a worthy reward, boasting a variety of birds and a view across to Scotland. Just remember that there is only one route back!
