The rope bridge on Northern Ireland's north coast, on the outskirts of Ballintoy, has been a popular visitor attraction for decades.

It was originally erected by salmon fishermen in 1755, spanning 20 metres across a 30 metre drop to the sea below.

The current bridge is made out of wire rope and Douglas fir, and attracts hundreds of thousands of visitors every year to enjoy the thrill as well as the magnificent local scenery.
