“Where are we going today dad?”
“We’re going to search for a monster!”
If you’re in the Loch Ness region then there’s nothing quite like the hunt for the mysterious Nessie to stir the kids’ imaginations.
Just off the shore of Loch Ness is the village of Drumnadrochit where the Loch Ness Centre and Monster Exhibition is based.
The Exhibition guides you through all the legends of the monster, the many alleged sightings, and the failed attempts to find Nessie. It also digs into the geology of the region.
Whether you believe in the monster or not, if you haven’t been to Loch Ness before you’re in for a surprise. This isn’t some little lake with a quaint monster story – Loch Ness is more of an inland sea, and something quite spectacular in the small British Isles.

So does the monster exist?
Having sailed on Loch Ness a few times, I personally don’t think much can live in those dark peat filled waters…. however….
Just keep your eyes peeled and camera at the ready just in case.
A good vantage point to look out for Nessie is the near by Urquhart Castle.
