1000 Club: The most visited pages on this website, the club only includes those pages which have received more than 1000 visits since the page was created. This now includes most of the main pages, so see above…

 

Although this is a good indication of popularity, many pages were only recently added, so have not had the chance to get sufficient numbers, others the counter was not added until recently.

 

There are some surprises in the list, both those that are included, many that are not, the reasons are not clear. Dirleton Castle, for example, has more than twice as many visits as nearby Tantallon.

 

HES sites are well represented with 22 entries, while there is only one NTS property. The next highest place NTS site is Culzean Castle with 986 visits.
