Ben Nevis HD WebCam from Fort William, Scotland

The Ben Nevis Webcam provides images of the highest mountain in the UK during the hours of daylight in Scotland. If you are planning a trip to the summit - check the weather forecast !

The Ben Nevis HDWebcam is located at Tomacharich, Fort William. Camera time is BST (GMT+1) in summer and GMT in winter.  The WebCam usually operates between dawn and dusk. Depending on YOUR time of day and location you may not see the mountain live due to night-time darkness in the UK. The Ben Nevis HDWebcam provides an opportunity to view Ben Nevis for general interest, or more specifically, if you are planning a walk up the mountain footpath during the winter months when it can be an extremely hostile place.

Throughout the year it often provides spectacular views. In winter, it is an excellent resource for latest snow and ice conditions and a general indication of meteorological conditions. During periods of bad weather in the Ben Nevis area, you may only see a grey picture. Don't worry - this is genuine and is a natural phenomena called Scotch Mist! In summer, the white patches on the mountain are the remaining winter snow patches which last almost all the way through to September, when the snow returns.

Ridge walkers, North Face mountaineers and ice climbers should be able to assess mountain conditions from some of the current WebCam images - subject to suitable weather conditions and cloud level for camera operations. Please follow the link for a considered view of Climbing conditions from a experienced, local mountaineer. If you want to see what some of our ski pistes look like, this same camera will transmit a view of Nevis Range ski slopes on Aonach Mor, the mountain adjacent to Ben Nevis. The mountain Gondola is open all year to visitors, subject to weather. Nevis Range is also home to a World Class downhill mountain bike track.

TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR YOUR PERSONAL SAFETY
If you intend to go onto the Scottish Mountains - and in particular the Ben Nevis area, please take full responsibility for your own personal safety. Mountain rescue if not a right. Police time and our NHS facilities are not free. The Air Sea Rescue helicopter costs more than £40,000 per hour to operate and is paid for by tax-payers.

Visit Fort William and pay for a mountain guide or go on a winter mountain course with one of our mountain guiding businesses shown below.
