  2. The Lake Loch Ness and Nessi Loch Ness, located in the Scottish Highlands, has the largest volume of fresh water in Great Britain. The body of water reaches a depth of nearly 800 feet and a length of about 23 miles. The Loch Ness Monster is a mythical animal that allegedly lives in Loch Ness. It is often described as large in size with a long neck and one or more humps protruding from the water. Although accounts of an aquatic beast living in the lake date back 1,500 years, all efforts to find any credible evidence of the animal have failed. That hasn’t dampened the public’s enthusiasm, however, for any news about “Nessie.”
  3. The earliest written reference to a monster in Loch Ness is a 7th- century biography of Saint Columba, the Irish missionary who introduced Christianity to Scotland. In 565 A.D., according to the biographer, St. Columba was on his way to visit the king of the northern Picts near Inverness when he stopped at Loch Ness to confront a beast that had been killing people in the lake. Seeing a large beast about to attack another man, St. Columba intervened, invoking the name of God and commanding the creature to “go back with all speed.” The monster retreated and never harmed another man. After the 1933, interest steadily grew, especially after another couple claimed to have seen the beast on land, crossing the shore road. Several British newspapers sent reporters to Scotland, including London’s Daily Mail, which hired big-game hunter Marmaduke Wetherell to capture the beast. After a few days searching the loch, Wetherell reported finding footprints of a large four-legged animal. However, upon closer inspection, zoologists at the Natural History Museum determined that the tracks were identical and made with an umbrella stand or ashtray that had a hippopotamus leg as a base.

  4. “Surgeon’sphotograph” In 1934 English physician Robert Kenneth Wilson photographed the alleged creature. The iconic image known as the “surgeon’s photograph”appeared to show the monster’s small head and neck. The Daily Mail printed the photograph, sparking an international sensation. Many speculated that the creature was a plesiosaur, a marine reptile that went extinct some 65.5 million years ago.Finally, the famous 1934 photo was a hoax .
  5. The Best Loch Ness Monster Movies The Loch Ness Monster has captured the attention of mystery-seekers and filmmakers all over the world. The best Loch Ness Monster movies come in many forms. Some Loch Ness films are horror movies while other good Nessie pictures are family films. Scooby-Doo! and the Loch Ness Monster is a 2004 direct-to-video animated comedy horror film. Other good Loch Ness Monster movies include Magic in the Water, The Secret of Loch Ness , The Loch Ness Horror and The Water Horse: Legend of the Deep.
  6. The Search Continues Amateur investigators kept an almost constant vigil, and in the 1960s several British universities launched expeditions to Loch Ness, using sonar to search the deep. Nothing conclusive was found, but in each expedition the sonar operators detected large, moving underwater objects they could not explain. In 1975, Boston’s Academy of Applied Science combined sonar and underwater photography in an expedition to Loch Ness. A photo resulted that, after enhancement, appeared to show the giant flipper of a plesiosaur-like creature. Further sonar expeditions in the 1980s and 1990s resulted in more tantalizing, if inconclusive, readings.
  7. Despite the lack of conclusive evidence, the Loch Ness monster remained popular—and profitable. In the early 21st century, it was thought that it contributed nearly $80 million annually to Scotland’s economy. .
  8. Today... An international team of scientists is planning to scan the icy depths of Loch Ness using environmental DNA (eDNA) in an experiment to see if the legendary monster, Nessi, actually lives or lived in the waters of the lake. The use of eDNA samples is now an established tool for monitoring marine life, such as whales and sharks. A living organism, whenever it moves into its environment, leaves behind DNA samples from its skin, scales, wings, fur or urine and its feces.
  9. A 12-year-old schoolgirl, Charlotte Robinson from Leeds, was taking an unlikely photo when she visited Lake Loch Ness. According to DailyMail, the 12-year- old found herself in the lake with her parents to see the natural landscape, but she did not expect to capture the "Loch Ness Beast" or Nessi. Many who specialize in the theme of the mystery that exists in the lake believe that it is the best photo that has been taken for years and the mystery grows resulting to an increasing number of people who would like to visit the well-known lake! Nessi's myth lives!
