Loch Ness in the Scottish Highlands

The Scottish and Gaelic term for a lake or sea inlet is 'Loch' (read more about Loch on Wikipedia). And for a traveler to the Scottish Highlands, it would seem that the entire region of the Scottish Highlands have a number of such water bodies, and also help in drawing a number of tourists to the region. One of the largest such bodies in the region is Loch Ness, a massive water body that is very deep and hence contains a huge amount of water (Loch Ness on Wikipedia); containing more water than any other such Loch in the British Isles with the deepest point being 230 meters deep. Loch Ness of course is more famous for the apparent (or alleged) presence of Nessie, the Loch Ness monster. Sightings have been there for millennia, with the first presence of the monster in the River Ness during the 6th century when Saint Columba ordered the monster to not attack his companion at which the monster drew back. Over the years, especially in the last century, sightings have increased, but no proof has been found even after many attempts to solve the mystery of the monster.

Loch Ness is very beautiful, set amidst some great greenery and with green covered hills on the side. For people wanting to see this beautiful environment and the surroundings, and who are using caravans, this caravan park is a great idea. Set just next to the loch, the image shows the entrance to the Loch along with the greenery.

A spectacular setting on the shore Loch Ness in the Scottish Highlands. This is a small settlement, called Fort Augustus, located on the south west end of the Loch. The place is small, with less than a 1000 people and is heavily dependent on tourism. With settings such as the above, a small section of the shore of the Loch, looking extraordinarily beautiful, no wonder you have a lot of visitors to the Loch and its surroundings.

Enjoying on the waters of the Loch Ness, in the morning. I wanted to enjoy a view of the Loch in the morning, when there is a slight mist, and there are almost no tourists around. Apparently, this person had a better idea, going kayaking on the water of the Loch in the morning. Obviously, no fear of the Loch Ness monster.
