Viewable from another WHS
WHS which can be seen from another WHS. Excluding contiguous sites (which can obviously be seen across their mutual boundary!). Also multi-location sites if any of the locations are the same or are contiguous (even if not the chosen ones).
The view should be achievable as part of "normal" touristic viewing - thus it is not axiomatic that, if A can be seen from B, then B can be seen from A, since the view of B from A may be of parts of the site which are not accessible when visiting B.
The connection belongs to Trivia connections.
