.Nessie alias the Loch Ness Monster - Do you believe ?
The Loch Ness Monster, affectionately known as Nessie by the locals, is said to live in the large Loch Ness Lake in Scotland. Loch Ness Lake is 22 miles long, about a mile wide, and at it's deepest point it is 950 feet deep. In a nearly inaccessible, remote area up until the early 1930's, Loch Ness Lake is part of the Great Glen which runs like a deep crack clear across Scotland. A small town, Fort Augustus is located at the southern end of the lake, and the town of Inverness is located at the northern end of the lake.
Nessie has been seen in the Lake for a very long time, it seems. Sightings of Nessie have been reported in print as early as AD 565 in the manuscript of Life of St. Columba (vol. 6, book 11, chap 27). It seems that a water monster had bitten to death a man in the Loch Ness Lake.
................. I am not a believer myself though from a child I have always had a fascination with Nessie ....(Grandad was a Scot ) just wondering what opinions & views other members had on the subject ? We are hoping (me & oh to travel up to Scotland in the next month or so & stay in a hotel that overlooks ''the lake'' (cant wait ... as we have never been to Scotland before)
...............so any tips appreciated x
