Biggest single island gannet colony in the world
The Scottish Seabird Centre is one of the world leaders in remote wildlife viewing. The webcam images above refresh every 5 seconds and are transmitted live from our solar powered cameras.
The Bass Rock is the largest single island gannet colony in the world, home to an incredible 150,000 gannets. The gannets spend most of the year on the Bass, until the end of October when they set out on their long journey down to the west coast of Africa.
Discover fascinating gannet facts and find out how you can adopt your own gannet family, with all proceeds invested in the charity.
The lower ledges of the Bass are home to shags, guillemots and razorbills, with seals hauling up on the rocks below.
If like what you see, why not visit the Discovery Centre and control the cameras for yourself. You can extend your Seabird experience with a seasonal boat trip.
If this screen appears black, green or frozen, the cameras may have been switched off overnight or to allow researchers on the islands to carry out their work. We apologise for any inconvenience.
