Three webcams will broadcast from inside and outside Maeshowe for a period of approximately a month either side of the winter solstice

The broadcast camera positions are:

Camera Location
Sample Image
Camera 1: Above the entry passage looking down onto the back wall of the tomb (this is the main camera)
Camera 2: Ouside the tomb looking West towards the Hoy Hills (mainly used to give an idea of current weather conditions close to sunset)
Camera 3: In the East chamber looking out towards the entry passage

In previous years we have had the cameras up for less time and originally there were only two cameras, with the outside camera being added in December 1999. Camera positions have been changed slightly throughout the years we have operated the webcams
. In 2012 we installed new POE high resolution IP cameras with much better images and we hope reliability.
