A Whirlwind Trip of Monster Legends From Around the World

Come to Scotland and Visit the Loch Ness Monster!

Have you ever wanted to see a real live monster? Come visit The Loch Ness Monster in the Loch Ness area of Scotland, a country that is part of the United Kingdom.

Nessie is a lake monster. Some people think that she may be a dinosaur called a plesiosaur, while other people think she is a giant eel. Even though people have reported sightings of Nessie from as far back as the 6th century, no one has ever been able to prove whether or not she really exists. Supposedly, she is around 30-40 ft long, with a long neck and humps that move up and down in the water. Since the 1930's, there have been hundreds of eyewitnesses who claim to have seen the Loch Ness Monster.

Nessie is not considered a dangerous animal, although some stories about her indicate that she has charged at boats or chased people on land.

There are many photos, films, and underwater sonars of some odd things in the loch, but none of them have been able to prove that there really is a monster in the water. The Scottish Loch is a freshwater lake that is almost 37 miles long and very deep, almost 800 ft deep in some places. The water is extremely cold and has poor visibility due to heavy peat moss floating in the water. Geographers believe that there were once underground tunnels beneath the loch which flowed in to the sea.

Tourists should come visit the Loch Ness with their video cameras and try to catch a sight of Nessie. There are many wonderful hotels in the towns of Inverness and Drumnadrochit, the castle Urquhart, museums and art galleries, camping, hiking, golfing, and a wide variety of shopping and sight seeing in the Highlands.
