/ Useful UK Climbing Webcams
'Let's ask those plucky fellows who go outdoors as well as scribbling on UKC which webcams if any they use?.
So if anyone has good webcam links please add them here...
Do you have any plans for regularly checking the links on the page? There are a few other sites with similar lists, but are fairly useless as so many of the webcams included either no longer work, or have had their URLs changed.
The UKB Wiki has listed quite a few since 2010...
They were collated together based on this thread...
The UKB Wiki is editable so if you find a link is broken you can update it yourself (e.g. search for the webcam on a popular search engine).
Wiki's are ideal solutions to these sorts of community sourced information resources.
lots on here for the peak area
and I use this to give me an idea what its like deeside/east cairngorms http://www.deesideglidingclub.co.uk/webcam.html
And this for Longhaven aberdeenshire http://www.kintailmrt.org.uk/conditions.htm
I'm looking to add a cam for Llanberis Pass with a clear view up the pass toward the North Ridge of Crib Goch, along with some weather data, of interest at all?
For the lakes http://www.elh.co.uk/watersports/web_cam.aspx at the Low Wood hotel (looks over Windermere) is useful when it's working
Main problem seems to be finding cameras that are still working so if you are going to have some kind of resource, it needs maintenance. Also, decent descriptions of what a webcam provides before looking at it would be good; e.g. view from XXX over YYY, useful to see weather conditions on ZZZ
