Here is an image and a very short video of  the magical, mystical, beautiful and truly original Fairy Bridge at Kewaigue, Braddan. 🇮🇲

Standing here made me feel like I was not alone, so eerie but so very peaceful…

My late father used to visit this magical place when he was a kid and told me many times about it and how he loved to walk out there.
