Tickets to the Bridge are on a timed basis so get there early to avoid the crowds. After a short walk with nice views you arrive at a steep staircase before traversing the bridge. There is a small fisherman cottage on the other side although...More

The rope bridge connects the mainland to a tiny island which offers some amazing views of the coast. The cliffs are very beautiful, but the bridge itself is really creepy because you can feel how it moves :D

The hike to the bridge is about a half-mile of up-and-down terrain with benches for resting along the way. The views along the way are absolutely stunning, as they are from the rope bridge. We had a short wait to cross the bridge as only...More

This bridge was erected to allow fisherman to cross over to the island to catch salmon as they migrated. No longer used for this purpose it has become a popular tourist attraction. You first walk along a costal path with a gorgeous view. You then...More

The parking is free but you have to pay for an hour time slot to walk down and cross the bridge. Free to National Trust members.
