Loch Ness, Inverness, Scotland

You can't get around it. When it comes to one of the world's most mysterious, intriguing, and investigated lakes, Loch Ness is probably on top of the list.

Loch Ness is located near Inverness, the capital of the Scottish Highlands, and is the second largest, fresh water lake in Scotland. Surface-wise that is (21.8 sq mi), because volume-wise it beats all the other lakes by a mile, so to speak.

Formed by glaciers, the lake feeds the six mile long river Ness which makes its way through the centre of Inverness. The city mostly depends on tourism and light industry for its income.

It does have a lot to offer as far as interesting and intriguing places to visit go. On the western shores you can admire the natural history and legend of Loch Ness at The Loch Ness Centre and Exhibition in Drumnadrochit or board a boat for a cruise on Loch Ness.

Also located in this area is Urquhart Castle, while the southern shores offer the opportunity to see Fort Augustus. At Lochend in the north you will find Bona Lighthouse, and here is no lack of surrounding towns and cities worthy of your attention.

The main reason why most tourists visit Loch Ness is in the hope of catching a glimpse of its monster of course. Videos, photographs, and recounts of numerous eye-witnesses are circulating all over the map.

Maybe it is its great depth of 755 feet, the murky, high-peat containing water, or the imagination-piquing, low hanging, regularly occurring mists over the loch, that play tricks on the eyes. Maybe there really is some prehistoric creature well-hidden down there.

It is hard to tell. You may want to investigate and see for yourself. You never know what you may run into!
