The Loch Ness monster

The famous Loch Ness monster. You have probably heard of it and, but how much do you know about it except for the fact that it lives in a lake?

The first report and seeing of the monster might be as early as year 565, when the Irish monk Saint Columba encountered a burial of a man by the river Ness. This man was said to have died while swimming and encountering a water beast.

The Loch Ness monster, or Nessie as it might be called, lives in the Loch Ness in the Scottish Highlands. This is how it supposedly looks like:

Later, the photograph has been analyzed and the object on was probably no bigger than 2-3 feet/60-90 cm. So if this is a photo os Nessie, she's not as big as many might have thought!

The modern stories about Nessie

In 1933, two hotel-owners, Mr and Mrs Mackay was on their way home from a visit to Inverness. They were driving alone the new road, which had been built along the Loch Ness lake.

Suddenly, Mrs. Mackay shouted at her husband to stop the car. She had seen something violently moving on the lake beside them, but by the time Mr. Mackay had stopped the car- it was gone.

It is believed that Mrs. Mackay had seen the Loch Ness monster.
