We offer visitors the chance to see wildlife in its natural habitat via our remote live 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 three miles from the Scottish Seabird Centre and with grassy slopes and cliffs, it is home to significant populations of guillemots, razorbills, shags, gulls and puffins. During spring there are fantastic views of nesting fulmars.

This is live activity that visitors to the Discovery Experience are controlling. The footage is transmitted from cameras based on the island.

If the live screen appears black or frozen, the cameras may have been switched off overnight, to allow researchers on the islands to carry out their work or we may be experiencing technical problems with them (particularly in winter as our cameras are solar powered). We apologise for any inconvenience.

Visit our Discovery Experience and explore the incredible marine wildlife and diverse habitats found around Scotland's shores. Our exciting new exhibits, games and high definition live cameras take you on a journey through Scotland's seas from our mysterious deep water corals to our majestic kelp forests.
