    More than just a monster! The sedimentary rocks which cradle Loch Ness are some of the oldest in the world. 600,000,000 years ago Loch Ness was in the southern hemisphere. Ospreys are now regularly seen fishing at Loch Ness. The three Artic Char caught by the Loch Ness Project in 1982, at depth of 730 feet, are the deepest fish ever caught in freshwater.

    The tales and sightings of the Loch Ness Monster has made this part of Scotland world famous. The mystery and intrigue brings avid "Nessie" enthusiasts to this beautiful countryside lake year after year, in the hope that they may be next to spot the fabled monster. The Loch is amazingly eerie and calm and is also home to the unforgettable Urquhart Castle which cradles its foreshore. What's left of this mysterious castle can be explored on your own with nothing but a guide book. I highly recommend that in order to get your best experience of Urquhart Castle. It's presence on the Loch side exudes such a magical medieval energy that is hard to ignore and it has stayed with me ever since. Perhaps that is why "Nessie" has ben spotted near the castle more than anywhere else on the Loch. She must like it as much as i do!

Description

Although people don't come to the 23 mile-long Scottish lake for the scenery, the stark beauty of the place soon takes them. While they scan the water for the mythical Loch Ness Monster, aka “Nessie,” they're quick to notice the beautiful Highlands behind them. Legend has it that in these murky waters (thank the rich soil full of peat that makes the whiskey famously tasty) lives a creature with a long neck and humped body who occasionally startles fishing boats and picnickers before shyly slipping away. Everyone from serious scientists to conspiracy theorists have tried to find Nessie, sometimes even using sonar to scan the hundreds-of-feet-deep water. If you're lucky, maybe the dinosaur-like creature will pop up and say hello while you have your video camera on.
