2 – The Loch Ness Monster

Loch Ness is very big and very deep, and according to some the home to the most hunted-for beast in the annals of cryptozoology, a surviving dinosaur universally called the Loch Ness Monster (Nessie for short). Rumours about the creature date back to the 7th century, but the modern craze for Nessie was born in 1933 when George Spicer claimed a sighting on land shortly before photographs of the creature by Hugh Gray were published and the police were ordered to protect the mystical monster from trophy hunting hunters. Satellites and sonar have been enlisted in the search, but as yet no definitive evidence of the giant swimmer has been found. The last sighting in the Loch itself (it’s now been seen in the River Tay too) was a video shot by a tourist in March 2015 (watch here) and showing the aftermath of a surfacing – they were too gobsmacked to film the actual thing apparently.
