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.
