The Loch Ness Monster
The Loch Ness Monster is probably one of the most famous monsters in the World. My daughter Madeline has been obsessed by ‘Nessie’ since I came back from a trip around Denmark in 2007. I’d been looking for a present for her in the shops at Esbjerg and I found ‘Scooby Doo and The Loch Ness Monster’ on DVD. Maddy was only 3 then, but she loved the film and kept asking about The Loch Ness Monster and if it existed. I like to think it does, but unfortunately it has not been discovered or documented by scientists. Even so there are plenty of people who have taken photographs, videos and sonar readings of the monster. Naturally, scientific spoil sports have disputed all this ‘evidence’. Modern science dismisses existence of the monster as just a myth, often mistaken visual evidence just being normal every day objects, hoaxes or people just making up stories.
Nessie was first brought to the attention of the World in 1933. Most believers think that the monster is something a plesiosaur.
If you want to find out more about The Legend of Nessie take a look at The Legend of Nessie the Ultimate Loch Ness Monster Site it really is rather wonderful. The site has a large section called ‘The Evidence’ in which it lists in detail all the land based sightings, water based sightings, sonar recordings and recorded film evidence.

Where to stay in a motorhome at Loch Ness
For me there is only one choice here, the beautiful Loch Ness Shores Camping and Caravanning Site on the south side of Loch Ness. There are actually plenty of places in Scotland where you can wild camp, but this site’s location is just superb.Loch Ness Shores Camping and Caravanning Club Site,
The site is open all year round and has 99 pitches for motorhomes and/or caravans. Loch Ness Shores uses innovative green technologies to heat and illuminate the facilities which include an amenity block with under floor heating and shower rooms. The site has its own shop where you can buy take away drinks, food for a barbecue and local produce. You can access the internet easily as the site has WiFi.
Although you are in an idyllic setting by Loch Ness, you can take a wander into Foyers for food and drink too. The Waterfall Café is a 20 minute walk, Craigdarroch House Hotel is ten min walk. The nearby Dores Inn is just 10 minutes away which serves food and the Whitebridge Hotel is only 4 minutes away.
