Loch Garten Webcams Live

Welcome to our live webcams at the Abernethy Loch Garten Nature Centre.

Live nest cams

Osprey nest cam

Check out the breeding ospreys, or if they haven’t been successful, watch another wildlife camera from the reserve.

Goshawk nest cam

Goshawks are one of the rarest birds of prey, but also one of our most secretive and wary! This nest cam is giving us much more than a glimpse into their world high up in the canopy of the vast Abernethy Forest in the Cairngorms National Park.

What am I looking at?

Spring and Summer

We will stream the best cameras for you to enjoy live from the forest.

We hope this will include a nesting pair of ospreys at the world-famous osprey nest at the Loch Garten Nature Centre. For up dates on how the season is going please check out our Facebook page

Autumn and Winter

Come Autumn, the ospreys have left on their winter migration and our cameras focus on other species that can be seen in the forest.

Where is it?

RSPB Scotland Abernethy nature reserve, near Aviemore in the Scottish Highlands.


  • Our breeding ospreys have returned here from their wintering grounds (West Africa, southern Spain or Portugal) and are battling all that nature can throw at them to raise a family.
  • The osprey nest site at Loch Garten has been in use since the late 1950s, when ospreys first returned to breed in Scotland after being persecuted to extinction in the UK in the earlier part of the 20th century.
  • The nest site has been continually monitored and protected by volunteers throughout the osprey breeding season ever since 1958.
  • Ospreys now breed across the UK and population estimates are at around 400 breeding pairs – a real conservation success story, which started here at Loch Garten.
  • Ospreys are the only raptor which have a completely fish diet.
