After a night full of shooting stars I was ready for another highlight at the Causeway Coast: the Carrick-a-rede robe bridge.
Connected to the cliffs by a rope bridge across the Atlantic Ocean, Carrick-a-Rede Island (home to a single building – a fisherman’s cottage) is the final destination.
Suspended almost 100 ft (30 m) above sea level, the rope bridge was first erected by salmon fishermen 350 years ago. (National Trust)
It´s a lovely one-mile walk along the cliffs from the parking to the “final destination” – the bridge. If you´re like me and not that excited about crossing a rope bridge high up in the air, you don´t have to pay anything, one only needs a ticket for crossing the bridge to the island. And these tickets have time slots, during high season it´s probably better to be there bright and early. No online pre-booking possible – find all the information on the site of the National Trust.
Scotland in the back.
