Journey to the Loch ness story,
Loch ness in the North of Scotland became world famous thanks to the legend of the Loch Ness monster Nessie (Nessie). The stories of “eyewitnesses” for hundreds of years are reduced to the fact that the monster has a huge size. Many even give detailed descriptions of the appearance of the monster, which gave the soil boring “British scientists” to build multiple models and searching for the connection with actually existing on the planet 100 million years ago, the Plesiosaur.
The lake is 37 km from a small typical Scottish town of Inverness and easily accessible from other parts of the UK by plane or rail.
Inverness stands on both sides of the river Ness, which makes possible excursions to lake on boats and ships. It is easy to guess that this industry is very good.
Ships go down the river, which is part of the Caledonian canal to Loch Ness Lake in about 1.5 hours, stopping in a chain of small gateways.
Alternatively, you can use a more budget tour, including bus transfer to Visitor Centre, located in the village of Drumnadrochit near the hotel.
Here is a true monument of Nessie is an imaginary being who fed and watered several generations of residents of Inverness:
In the study center quite convincingly prove that there is no Nessie, successively refuting all the available “evidence” of his existence.
Around there are several trails for Hiking.
Around the lake you can ride on a variety of vessels – from boats, four-deck vessels.
On one of these steamers was seen a shining example of classic English:

Photos Of Loch Ness
The lake is of fresh water, exceeding the total reserves of England and Wales, as well as the maximum depth of 230 meters.
Such parameters automatically put it on par with, for example, lake Baikal. Although, Loch ness and much smaller. By the way, Loch translated from Gaelic (Scottish) is oddly enough the lake.
The lake lost in the Scottish Highlands area, famous for its whiskey. By the way, whiskey is made, including water from the lake Loch Ness.
One more of differences of Loch ness from the lake – water clarity. Due to the high content of peat in the soil of a Scottish lake is much more turbid.
On the shore of the lake is another tourist attraction – the ruins of Urquhart castle (Urquhart) of XIII century.
The visit usually included in the tour price on the lake.
All the buildings you can climb.
Nearby is a reconstruction of Trebuchet – medieval projectile weapons used to siege castles. They say that the equipment is in working condition.
Here is a cute, lost in the hills of the lake. For my taste, the ride is slightly less steep than, say, on the same Queenstown. but to fly over the entire planet there is no need.
In addition, since the topography of this part of Scotland is more or less similar, You can always look through several similar but not trampled by tourists.
