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. Note that the mast to the right has been built to replace the original.

This webcam points towards Black Law Wind Farm, which when built, was the largest onshore windfarm in the UK. ,
This image is normally of an Oregon Scientific weather station, whose sensors live in a Stevenson Screen loop
The weather station cam is the Sweex interfaced with Vision GS. The High Res Wind Farm camera is an Olympus C760UZ, which is controlled by Pine Tree Computing's Camera Controller. The full size image has, to the best of my knowledge, held the record for 6 years of being the highest resolution webcam in the UK. The new High Res Transmitter cam is an Olympus SP500UZ, also controlled by Camera Controller.Software.
Please also have a look at some weather pictures taken in the local area.
