Nessie Hunting

Loch Ness is a 30 minute drive from most of the Waverley Inn Group's properties, during in which you can see some of the most scenic parts of the Highlands.

A very old scottish story is that there is a monster that lives deep in the waters of Loch Ness. The story goes back to the year 500ad when images of a strange being were carried into rocks located near the Loch.  Since then people have flocked to the area hoping to see the monster which has been named The Loch Ness Monster, or Nessie for short.

Take a trip to Loch Ness and see for yourself the beauty of the area and if you can spot Nessie.

There are numerous boat trips that can be taken to try and spot Nessie.  Loch Ness has the largest volume of water in the British Isles and the depth of the water is 230 metres deep.  Taking a guided tour is the best way to see the whole area, including the histrorical landmarks and beautiful sights.  This is the ideal spot totry and find Nessie.

St Columba in 565ad is the earliest recorded encounter with The Loch Ness Monster.  The monk apparently saw a large sea-like creature attacking and killing people in Loch Ness.  He told the creature to stop and commanded it that it went back into the Loch.  The creature obeyed and so visitors to the Loch are safe.

Nessie made the local news in 1933 when a couple said they saw a huge animal out in the Loch.  More and more people said they saw the creature too, so a media frenzy ensued.  Colonel Robert Wilson produced an image of a serpentine creature in 1934.  This was thought to be evidenace that the Loch Ness Monster existed but it was eventually proven to be a hoax.

Many people still believe The Loch Ness Monster exists and there have been numerous attempts to try and prove it.  No one knows for sure if the Loch Ness Monster exists, but you can have lot's of fun trying to spot the monster, while enjoying all the delightful scenery of the local area.
