The National Trust rangers were on hand to give guided talks in the cottage on Carrick-a-Rede Island every 15 minutes between 1pm and 4pm all weekend.

The Fishery Open Weekends are an opportunity for visitors to learn about the history of salmon fishing on the north coast and hear more about the first rope bridge on the site, as well as fishing and transporting techniques used by the old fishermen of Carrick-a-Rede.
