Bank of Scotland reports bumper month for ATMs

Bank of Scotland's network of cash dispensers broke all records in December 2001, when customers withdrew over £448 million from the bank's 1224 Automated Teller Machines (ATMs) - an increase of 13% on 2000's record figure of £397 million.

Seven ATMs dispensed over £1 million during December. The single busiest machine was at Glasgow Cross, Glasgow, which issued over £1.3million last month. The top five machines also included: Thistle Centre, Stirling (£1,294,070), Mercat Centre, Kirkcaldy (£1,228,620), Sauchiehall Street, Glasgow (£1,079,100) and Bon Accord Centre, Aberdeen (£1,042,480).

The busiest sites in the network included Bon Accord Centre, Aberdeen, where the bank's four ATMs together issued over £3.1 million. Shopping centres at St Enoch Centre, Glasgow and East Kilbride also proved popular sites as the three machines at each site peaked £2.5 million.

The busiest weekend was Friday 22 - Sunday 24 December, when over £59 million was issued; 40% more than an average weekend. The majority of this was withdrawn on 22 December - £25.3 million.
