Carrick-a-rede Rope Bridge, Ballintoy

Not perhaps the number one choice for vertigo sufferers, the Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge was erected by fishermen more than 350-years ago to enable them to check their salmon nets. Suspended across a 20-metre chasm between the mainland and the tiny island of Carrick (with a 30-metre drop to the water below) at Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge the choice is yours. Admire from afar the ingenuity of those local fishermen, or pluck up the courage to have a go at crossing yourself. Just remember Platinum NI’s cardinal rule…don’t look down! [In case you were wondering, yes, we have crossed it. I knew I should have taken a selfie to prove it!]
