Nice walk by the coast, great views and a lot of birds on the rocks. Walhking on the Rope Bridge is interesting, a bit scarry experience, but piecefull nature is worth every scarry step of it.

Didn't realize I would have to walk so far to get to it and it was a rainy day! By the time I got there I would have normally given up but I'd paid my money and walked all that way.. The defibrillator on the...More

I keep forgetting that I don't like dealing with heights until I'm doing with something that deals with heights, but I'm still glad I went through with this. It's a great view at pretty much every step of the way to, across, and back from...More

Lots of fun crossing the rope bridge. A fairly long walk from the car park to the bridge (and you won't see the bridge until you are almost there). Pictures on the Internet make it look much longer than it is. Very windy, but very...More

The Rope Bridge must be seen. Not necessary to cross if you suffer from Nausea or Vertigo, but worth getting there for the view. The path from the car park is long and uneven in places. There are several steep steps. A level of fitness...More

A great experience to cross the bridge the walk down to it is about 10 minutes from the time you pay to arriving at the attraction. The walk back is tough if you are unfit. I'm not too bad at 49 but it certainly increased...More

Wonderful views. Stunning scenery. It helped that it was a sunny dry day with little or no wind. Busy spot with lots of tour buses but we had no problem getting next tour after arriving . Lovely walk down to bridge, steep steps.

£8 each, they don’t make it clear when entering, you can walk right up to bridge for free, if you don’t want to cross, giants causeway the same, pay going through shop or free as an ulter way through bridge.
