Loch (Lake) Ness is 23 miles long, but the truly amazing fact (and this is where the monster comes in) is the depth. In some spots, Loch Ness is hundreds of feet deep – a fact that the Scots like to tell you: it’s deeper than the height of London’s BT Tower. Because of the peat levels in the area soil, the water is known for being murky. Undersea caverns have also been discovered and some think that the caverns connect it to the ocean. (Anne told us that most monster “sightings” have been in the area of the second picture.)
You could stack the world’s population in Loch Ness three times over.
So obviously, this is one big water-filled hole which inspires tales of unknown sea creatures.
But Loch Ness is also extremely beautiful, with the hills sloping down to the shore and castle ruins dotting the banks.
