The Mystery of Scotland

Scotland’s Loch Ness Monster


Where is loch ness

Where is Loch Ness?

  • Loch Ness is located in the Scottish Highlands.


Loch ness facts

Loch Ness Facts

  • Once known as Loch na Beiste or The Lake of the Monster.

  • The lake is 24 miles long, one and a half miles wide, average depth of 700 feet.

  • The water is very cold, and is an inky black color.


Characteristics of nessie

Characteristics of Nessie

  • Has a neck estimated to be six feet long

  • It has a serpentine looking head with a large bump behind it.

  • Nessie is estimated to be about 30 feet long from head to tail

  • Thought to be an air breather

  • Appearance of a plesiosaur


Reported sightings

Reported Sightings

  • First reported sightings date back to 1933

  • Part of the sightings are due to the new road built alongside the lake.

  • 1934, Arthur Grant made the first land sighting of Nessie

  • Some sightings are thought to be nothing but a hoax


Hoaxes

Hoaxes

  • Most famous photograph, “surgeons photo”, found false in 1993. Photo was of a model of the monster.

  • Another photograph shows a vague and fuzzy image of Nessie’s face, but was later proven to be the remains of a tree stump.

  • Sonar images show large object in the water, but uncertain if it is a school of fish.


The mystery of scotland

  • Foot prints were found leading out of the lake, but they were then proven to be that of a hippo, staged to be Nessie’s foot prints


Other possibilities

Other possibilities

  • Explanations can be either a manatee or a zeugloden (also known as a primitive whale).

  • Other culprits could be unknown species like a long necked seal, giant otter, or overgrown eel.

  • Logs of Scotch Pine trees that decay underwater and create gases that cannot escape, but will eventually break through and propel the log through the water.

  • Standing waves that are created by wind piling up a layer of warm water to the end of the loch and forcing the cold water to the opposite side.
