This beautiful loch is shrouded in mystery, all thanks to a long, thin green creature that circles the deep waters occasionally raising her head above the water for a picture.
It goes without saying that Nessie is our favourite monster, but the place where she lives is even more fascinating. Come and find out more!
By the loch
If you're looking for peaceful walks, perfect picnics or just sheer natural beauty, Loch Ness is the perfect spot.
This corner of the Highlands is world-famous for its dramatic scenery, with nearby castles and solitary lighthouses dotting the landscape.
The Loch Ness Monster
Tales of a large monster living deep beneath the dark expanses of Loch Ness have circulated the world since the first photograph emerged in 1933. With over 1,000 eye-witness accounts and copious amounts of unexplained evidence, scientists continue to be baffled by the existence of Nessie.
Numerous boat trips and Nessie tours take place from Inverness, Fort Augustus and Drumnadrochit. You can cruise along the loch with your cameras and smartphones at the ready!
