No Wigtownshire Ramblers walk this weekend,I was over on the Causeway Coast in Antrim.
These are a few of the pictures I took.

The rope bridge when it was a challenge...
...and after Health and Safety got hold of it.(You'd struggle to get that downward picture through the ropes now Marie !)
N.B It'll cost you £4.90 just to walk along the path to the bridge from the visitors centre,even if you don't cross it.

  1. Wow, what brilliant photos. You crammed a lot into a few days, looks like you had decent weather too. Hope you managed to find some good routes etc. Reading this tonight makes me want to go there very soon - what a place.

  2. Friday it rained all day,and just eased enough in the evening for me to climb Lurig with Cushendalls top firefighter.Saturday i got caught in one shower.All in all a very good trip.

  3. brilliant photo's. reminds me of lovely holidays. i'd love to go back there.

  4. Always fancied going there myself Jim.Typical west coast weather but it looks really special.Lucky bugger!
