The History of the Loch Ness Monster

Elusive and drenched in uncertainty, The Loch Ness Monster is an enormous aquatic being said to inhabit the darkest, deepest depths of Loch Ness in the Scottish Highlands. The legend of Nessie first began around 1933 when people began noticing unprecedented sights in and around the loch. However, many state that an earlier sighting occurred much further back in time.

Throughout the years, a few blurry photographic findings have emerged from the surface. In recent years, some video footage has claimed to be captured of the notorious water monster. Over time, an indescribable amount of missions and expeditions in search of this Scottish inhabitant have occurred in full force. Among the full hearted Nessie believers, are skeptics. Even though there are skeptics, that doesn’t stop the enormous amounts of effort that is still going on to this day.
