This webcam points towards Black Hill Transmitters, 14.5km to the NNW. Note that the cloud base can be determined at night by the number of lights illuminated on the masts, whose base is 925' amsl. See key. Though on many occasions the cloud base at Black Hill is not representative of that at Carluke. These masts are Scotland's tallest manmade structures.

This webcam points towards Black Law Wind Farm, which when built, was the largest onshore windfarm in the UK. ,

The low res cam is a Logitech webcam interfaced with Vision GS. The Wind Farm camera is an Olympus C765UZ, which is controlled by Sabsik's Cam2Com. The C765 was bought in 2018 to replace a trusty C760UZ which had taken several million shots, but the sensor eventually became noisy and lined. The full size image, to the best of my knowledge, held the record for 8 years of being the highest resolution webcam in the UK. The High Res Transmitter cam is an Olympus SP500UZ, also controlled by Cam2Com. Both are on a 5 minute upload schedule, though are prone to losing USB connectivitySoftware.
