According to the wikipedia - the free encyclopedia, the Loch Ness Monster, sometimes called Nessie or "Ness" is a creature or group of creatures said to live in Loch Ness, a deep freshwater loch (lake) near the city of Inverness in northern Scotland. Nessie is generally categorized as a lake monster.
Nessie has been seen in the Lake for a very long time. A legendary animal seems to be hunted till nowadays. You can try to see her too. Maybe you'll be lucky;-)
Meanwhile, Nessie continues to this day to appear on the lake, especially when the water is calm, much to the delight of not only lucky tourists, but also the local people, who depend on the tourists coming to investigate for monetary income, which helps the local economy. Nessie is an unknown animal / creature / thing, that stimulates the public's imagination to thinking that there is a element of danger and terror about its character. All the evidence, with the exception of the paranormal theories, suggests, however, that Nessie is "a shy, amiable and quite harmless" creature, that doesn't pose a threat to people.
We took one of the Jacobite cruises and I fully recommend it to anybody interested in seeing Loch Ness. We left from Inverness in the company's comfortable bus and fifteen minutes later we boarded their flagship, the Jacobite Queen, to cruise down the Caledonian Canal to the Loch. Our tour took a total of 3 hours, cost 13.50 each, and allowed us to cruise the length & breadth of Loch Ness and see the dramatic ruins of Urquhart Castle to narration and traditional Celtic music.
Urquhart Castle is not the castle you imagine when you think about a castle.
It is a ruined castle but the location of the place makes it very beautiful and dramatic.
On the shores of Loch ness.
You can enjoy a 1-3 hours here.
Loch ness , Lake ness is a famous lake all over the world because of the monster that people thought they saw.
This beautiful lake was on our way to Fort William and the highlands and after a short stop here we came back the other day again to enjoy this place.
There is nothing special to do here but the place is a must see because of the landscape and the monster legend.
Here is a photo of Urquhart Castle and Loch Ness beyond. We didn't actually get to go and tour around the site, but it looked like a fun castle to tour. The admission price looks a little steep, but look in to the multiple site discount through Historic Scotland sites if you will be traveling to several of their sites. (If you click on the main Urquhart site from the link below, it takes you to the Historic Scotland site.)
There are a variety of ways to sail expensively on the Loch, including the Jacobite cruises. However if you must empty your wallet, do it on the official tours from the visitor centre at Drumnadrochit. Here you get to take a boat with sonar (apparently no use for finding animate moving objects) and a captain who has years of experience sailing the loch and lots of personal sightings. Did it make my mind up about Loch Ness? Well, in the words of Arthur C Clarke, "On Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays I believe in Nessie."
That is all there is to it, go and stick your feet in the lake. It is suprisingly cold. I am not sure why I thought it wouldnt be, but I did think it would be at least moderate.
You can't miss this unique experience! On the other photo you can see the tranquillity and the stupendous view of the Loch! Don't you think it's magical?!!!
Loch Ness museum is a museum about the famous monster and lake , you can see a movie about it , buy gifts (of course).
