Kirkwall Harbour - A view from the Kirkwall Hotel
The webcam looking north over Kirkwall Harbour is located on the front of the Kirkwall Hotel, a stunning Victorian building located right on Kirkwall's harbour front. The webcam image refreshes every 20 seconds and is provided courtesy of the Kirkwall Hotel.
The Kirkwall Airport webcams are located in the airport building and look east over the apron and across Inganess Bay. The top image looks over the area where the inter-island aircraft loads and unloads its passengers and freight en-route to the north islands of Stronsay, Sanday, Eday, Westray, Papa Westray and North Ronaldsay. This is the service which has the shortest scheduled flight in the world between Papa Westray and Westray, less than two minutes when the wind is in the right direction. You will receive a certificate on completion of this flight when you return to Kirkwall.
The lower image again looks east showing the control tower and the area where the planes from Shetland, Inverness, Aberdeen, Edinburgh and Glasgow come and go. This camera gives a good idea of the weather at the airport.
Both cameras put up a new image every 5 minutes so although not exactly live, they do give an accurate view of the visibility at the airport. A big thank you to Neil Thain at Kirkwall Airport for allowing us to use the cameras. Webcam images are Courtesy of HIAL
