The Netherlands joined the ECHR in 1949 and Estonia in 1993. The ECHR publishes a document detailing the number of rulings regarding human rights violations per country over the period 1959 to 2014 (link below).
In the case of the Netherlands, there have been 145 rulings over a period of 56 years, of which 85 found at least one human rights violation. That comes to 1.52 negative rulings for the country each year.
In the case of Estonia, there have been 42 rulings over a period of 22 years, of which 34 found at least one human rights violation. That comes to 1.55 negative ruling for the country each year.
That's slightly higher than the Dutch average. However the Netherlands has a population 13 times larger than Estonia.
Correcting for that we find that, per inhabitant Estonia is found guilty by the ECHR of human rights violations 13 times more often than the Netherlands.
From my own personal experience, I cannot say that I am really surprised.
