Loch Ness is located in the North of Scotland and is one of a series of interlinked
lochs which run along the Great Glen.
For many years it has been supposed that there is a large dinosaur-like "monster"
resident in Loch Ness. The evidence for its existence are a series of sightings of a
plesiosaur-like dinosaur throughout the last 100 years. The case has occasionally
been supported by indistinct photographic evidence.
However, several scientific studies have been conducted, including thorough sonar
surveys of the loch, and these have not revealed any presence of such a "monster".
Many people believe that the size (21 square miles) and great depth of the loch
(almost 800 feet), together with potential underwater caves, gives the monster many
places to hide.
Regardless of the truth, the suggestion of the Monster's existence makes Loch Ness
one of Scotland's top tourist attractions.
