Visitor Attraction Monitor

Statistics on the visitor attractions sector are collected and analysed on a monthly basis by the Moffat Centre at Glasgow Caledonian University. The annual monitor gathers information from around 700 participating attractions in Scotland.


Following 10 years of funding by VisitScotland, this research is now available on a subscription basis directly from the Moffat Centre. For more information on the 2010 and onwards reports, please visit
