The drive to our first major stop takes us through the town of Dingwall, and villages of Maryburgh, Muir of Ord and Beauly where the ruined Priory was visited by Mary Queen of Scots visited saying it was a beautiful place. Continuing through the hill top crofting communities we descend into the Great Glen and the most famous lake in the world, Loch Ness home to our pet monster "Nessie". Here you will hear about the history of how the lake was formed and the story of Nessie from the first recorded sighting in the 6th century to the modern story from 1933 when the "Monster" story really developed.
