Loch Ness Monster


Loch Ness the Friendly Sea Monster

Loch Ness is a deep, elongated lake that is located very near Inverness, Scotland

It’ s mystical legend has drawn scientists and tourists from all over the world to have the possible chance to see the legendary Loch Ness monster , commonly known as Nessie.

Sightings of Nessie are known to have dated as far back as the Irish monk that visited and converted most of Scotland to Christianity sometime in the sixth century. This monks name was St. Columbia. Legend has it that St Columbia had also converted old Nessie as well. They say that until St Columbia went out onto the waters of Loch Ness and quieted her down, old Nessie was considered to be a murderess.
People have used many things to try and track and find this great legend that we all know as the great Loch Ness monster “Nessie”. This includes scanning sonar’s sex lures, fish baits, submarines, echo sounders, exploding light bulbs, underwater cameras with strobe flashes, telephoto cameras movie cameras, video and now, digital cameras also . You name it and it has probably been used.

There is also a modern legend of Nessie. It began in the year nineteen thirty four when a man by the name of Dr. Kenneth Wilson, a doctor from London, supposedly took a picture of what was described as a plesiosaur type of creature that’s rather long neck was protruding from the murky waters of Lake Loch Ness. As you can imagine, with the locals knowing of the legend, this picture caused quite the uproar. Before this photo was presented, the Loch Ness monster, Nessie, was merely a mythical legend. After the photo was taken, scientists were called to research this legend. They first thought it could have been a tree trunk or an otter, there were so many possibilities. So later on these scientists launched explorations of Lake Loch Ness with submarines that had high tech sonar equipment.

Things have changed a lot since this legend began. Visitors used to visit Loch Ness to sit and relax perhaps read a book Today there is a very large tourist industry at lake Loch Ness. These tourists have been known to pay one hundred dollars an hour for a submarine ride through Lake Loch Ness. In the year 1994 this rather large tourist attraction made somewhere close to thirty seven million dollars! When you visit Loch Ness now, you will see a variety of attractions such as boat cruises, souvenir shops, and you can even stay at the Loch Ness hotel.
