After Edinburgh we headed north to Inverness, home of the famed Loch Ness monster. We definitely saw Nessie.
This is Loch Ness. It is the largest body of water in Britain and is twice as deep as the London Eye is high (yes, we aim to provide interesting facts on this blog :)).
We went to the local visitor centre and heard all the facts about the many sightings of Nessie and the theories about the photos that have been ‘taken’ of her. But we decided to check it out for ourselves….
And there she was in plain sight in the middle of this photo. If you don’t believe that is the Loch Ness monster you will be stunned and amazed when you see the next one…
Submerged, but definitely a couple of periscopic eyeballs visible for all to see. (Disclaimer: this photo may or may not have been doctored).
With ‘find the Loch Ness monster’ ticked off our to-do list, we followed this odd windy little road just to see where it went.
And ended up here. This pink castle was right on the shore of one of the Lochs and turned out to be a restaurant/function centre. So we popped in for lunch. We were not able to eat in the restaurant as they had a private lunch underway but instead were ushered to the drawing room (so posh) for a delightful light lunch. The food was excellent and it was a bit like having a bit part in Downton Abbey!
