“Great fun, stunning scenery”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

Great fun. There is a lovely walk down to rope bridge itself. There are fantasitc views of the cliffs from both the island and the rope bridge. Try not to look down!

“Absolutely stunning!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

There is a bit of a walk to get to the bridge itslef and some rocky areas that could get pretty slick when they are wet but walking along what feels like the edge of the world you're rewarded with a stunning view of the Arran islands and Scotland in the distance on a clear day. I was fortunate enough to be there on a beautiful bluebird day. The bridge perhaps isn't for the fait hearted or those afraid of heights - but it is still worth a walk to the bridge even if you choose not to walk across. I highly recommend checking this place out, it is truly beautiful.

“Dont look down”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

This is a beautiful place to go in the summer, the bridge has been used and is still used by fisherman. It is a fair walk to the bridge not suitable for pushchairs. I have been as a child and an adult, I was more scared as an adult as it is very high up but extremley good fun and beautiful setting.
