Historic Scotland has just released figures showing that several of Scotland’s historic attractions have had a visitor increase in 2009 as compared with 2008.

Edinburgh Castle and Stirling Castle were the leaders, with each seeing nearly 7% growth in visitor numbers from a year ago. However, Skara Brae, Iona Abbey and Fort William all saw gains as well.

The combination of the Year of Homecoming and a weak Pound meant that Scotland in the summer of 2009 was an ideal destination for Europeans.

The top 10 attractions for Historic Scotland saw increases across the board and double-digit improvements the norm. This impressive growth cannot be understated, particularly in a dampened economy, where tourist spending was seriously curtailed.
