A picture is taken every 15 minutes between the hours of 05:00 and 22:00 UK local time (5am to 10pm). Outside of these hours there is nothing to see but blackness. Not just any blackness, but that special West Coast of Scotland blackness that, devoid of light pollution, is so black that light literally falls in to it. Click on the tables of times and dates to the left to jump directly to a hour. Please remember that you can only view pictures for today up to the current time!

Use the video recorder style buttons Forward button forward and Back button rewind buttons under the picture to step through the selected day 15 minutes at a time. Alternatively press the Play button play button to play a time-lapse sequence from morning until night.

More Information

This webcam is located behind Bernera Farmhouse and looks west across the Sound of Sleat to Ben Aslak on the Isle of Skye. At exactly 2,000 feet (610m) high, Ben Aslak just scrapes on to the list of Grahams; mountains in Scotland between 2,000 and 2,500 feet high with at least 500 feet of ascent on all sides.

The Grahams are poor relations to the Munros (Scottish mountains over 3,000 feet) and the Corbetts (2,500 to 3,000 feet). Indeed the Grahams were previously known as the Elsies as in 'LC' or Lesser Corbetts. There are 224 Grahams in Scotland.
