Historic Scotland reports record membership figuresHard work has paid off at Edinburgh Castle, where refurbishment work has contributed to Historic Scotland reporting an all-time high in membership numbers.

An incredible total of 125,702 culture vultures have signed up as members of the national conservation body which, compared to the same time last year, represents an 8.8 per cent rise.

St Margaret’s Chapel, the oldest building in the Scottish capital, was just one of the refurbished areas of the castle, with the Tea Room and its retail outlets also getting a thorough makeover.

Historic Scotland’s tourism and commercial director, Stephen Duncan, also cited the stories of Edinburgh castle, which have been undergone a re-telling to capture the imaginations of visitors. They represent some of the major events in the country’s history and are thought to be a major factor in driving up membership numbers.

Come and explore the number one paid-for visitor attraction in Edinburgh whilst enjoying a break in one of the fine hotels in Edinburgh this summer.
