Under Test

Click to open the webcam archive.
Not a Skye webcam yet. This webcam is currently undergoing test in Central Scotland. Click on the image to open the webcam archive page.

The software and equipment for this webcam is undergoing test in Central Scotland whilst a new home in north west Scotland is being prepared.

The view from this webcam used to be of lush green fields, grazing cows, the Campsie Hills and Ben Lomond. In 2006 this designated greenbelt land was lost following a direct appeal by developers of this new housing estate to the Secretary of State for Scotland, overturning the ruling of the local council. Where are the cows now? McDonalds probably.
