What if I were to tell you, wait for this you will love it, tynecastle........
....has been voted best away ground in the country BY THE FANS. And I quote 'Tynecastle retained its position as the ground most away fans like to visit with Victoria Park as second favourite, ahead of Easter Road.'
I got this info from Scottish Football Supporters Assoc. so there we go. I have never been to tynecastle but really?
I've got to be honest - I just can't stand the place because of all the maroon !. I associate that colour with losing, it's like a failed pink, something that isn't really a colour but isn't really a shade - in short, it's Hearts, a totally pointless and unnecessary item that if it was to vanish overnight, the world wouldn't notice or shed a tear !
I think it's to do with the atmosphere generated by steep-sided stands which tower over a tiny pitch - bringing fans closer to the action. The stadium is all but enclosed, which again helps amplify even the rustle of a crisp packet by your normally subdued Jambo.

That’s the dot count for Sat . They better hope St Johnstone fill the away end or it’s looking like 12k tops . Pmsl . Wheatfield: 2517
Hearts season tickets: 14,000 (minimum, as per November 2017, before half-season tickets went on sale)
Unsold dots for the St Johnston game: 6077
Total home attendance + empty seats: 20,077 (minimum)
Official capacity at TC: 20,099
I think it's safe to say that they're going to fill up St Johnston's apparent ticket allocation of 22, though I'm not sure it's going to help any. Either that, or the Gorgie faithful have been on the phone en masse to tell HMFC that they won't be going to the match on Saturday.
Maybe Tynecastle is the best stadium for away fans because they more or less have it all to themselves.
