Inspiration to Robert Louis Stevenson
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 island of Fidra is an RSPB reserve and believed to be the inspiration for Robert Louis Stevenson's Treasure Island. This small island is about 3 miles from the Scottish Seabird Centre and with grassy slopes and cliffs, it is home to small populations of guillemots, razorbills, gulls and puffins. During spring there are fantastic views of nesting fulmars and just now there are some wonderful views of peregrines to be seen.
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.
