Glencoe & Webcams

A site visit on a fine July Friday to Glencoe (how pleasant to be able to say that after some of the weather earlier this summer) and a hoof with a pile of computer kit in the Sun to the Glencoe SSC Hut at 2800ft, in order to get the webcam which looks out to Buachaille Etive Mor back on-line. On fine days Ben Nevis is visible on this cam and it’s a great cam to keep an eye on for cracking sunsets in the Summer.

Lots of people walking on the hill and riding the chairlift, it’s been a good busy summer week at Glencoe with the fine weather.

Winterhighland now manages 12 physical webcams (the Glencoe Access Chair camera provides five views in total) and some new additions are in the pipeline ahead of winter 2012. A big thank you to those who have directly supported Winterhighland in establishing and maintaining a network of cameras, including forum members who have ‘Winterhighland Snowflakes’ as a public thank you. See www.winterhighland.info/support for more information on helping Winterhighland further improve our camera network.

Also a big thank you to the guys at Glencoe for their help and support, plus to the Scottish Ski Club (www.scotski.org.uk) for hosting some of our cameras both at Glencoe and CairnGorm Mountain. Also thanks to the club sparky for installing the additional power sockets in the ‘Coe hut!!
