The 1km walk to the bridge has amazing views. The bridge itself isn't as long as you think it's going to be but if, like me, you're scared of heights, that's not a bad thing! It's perfectly safe & secure so nothing to worry about...More

The walk is stunning and the geology is so interesting, we did not go across the bridge as it was so busy, but still had a great experience.

Our experience here was fantastic as we had great, sunny weather. The tickets provide an hour time slot in which to cross the bridge, and we got to the bridge with about 20 minutes left in our slot, waited 5 minutes, and then crossed. We...More

The scenery is simply stunning, you have views from the cliff tops, and later views of the cliffs themselves and their sheer drops into the sea. If it's a clear day you can see Scotland across the sea, and we had a lovely view of...More

There is no time limit, although they do control how many people go across the bridge at a time. When we were there part of the island was closed off because of the nesting birds, and there has been some erosion. It is more... More
