THE SHIPS AND OIL WEBCAM - SPONSORED BY MMASS

SCROLL DOWN FOR THE LINK TO THE CAMERA

This is a poorly drawn map  of Aberdeen Harbour indicates the position of the webcam, and the views of the presets. Presets 1 to 4 are the wide angle pictures of four positions. Presets 5 to 8 are the black arrows and are close-ups these berths are usually occupied by large modern ships.

For those unfamiliar with Aberdeen, ships of several types enter and leave by the channel - on the right of this picture. Once in the harbour they tend to turn or change direction in the Tidal Basin, and then go on either forwards or backwards into the Dee, Albert Basin or Victoria Dock. Shell chartered vessels go to Torry Dock, BP chartered ships go to Albert Basin, others go to Victoria Dock or Pocra Quay by Footdee. Harbour movements can be seen at a distance from the Aberdeen City Council camera, and the presence or not of the Pilot Boat indicates whether there are movements taking place or pending.

There is a tendency for ships to leave in the early evening, and of course every day at either five o'clock or seven o'clock the ferry leaves from its berth in the Upper Dock, comes out of Victoria Dock, heads for St Fitticks Road and then turns left and heads out to sea.

We think the webcam is great so we hope you enjoy it too. Click here to give our Aberdeen Harbour webcam a try
