From Scottish Field on 2nd August:

The Seasonal Experiences Trend Index, announced by TripAdvisor, the world’s largest provider of bookable tours and activities, reveals the must-visit attractions for summer, based on year-over-year booking activity on the site. The firm announced the top 10 for the UK, with Scotland taking three of the slots- including the top two positions. With a 479% increase, taking top slot is the Loch Ness, Highlands and Whisky Distillery Day Tour from Edinburgh. Taking second place, with a 260% rise, is the Skip-the-Line Edinburgh Castle Walking Tour. And in eighth place, with a 200% rise is the One-Hour Real Mary King’s Close Underground Tour in Edinburgh.’

Tourism is, of course, booming across Scotland. See these earlier posts for more:

    Loch Ness is top-rated? The continuing power of heavy marketing. Groan.
