Castles · Specialty Museums · Bodies of Water
Few places in the world have inspired more mystery and wonder than Loch Ness. Famed as the home of the legendary Loch Ness monster, the iconic lake sits in the Scottish Highlands, fringed by rolling hills and dense patches of forest. Many people take a trip to Loch Ness for the chance to catch a glimpse of the mythical beast, allegedly seen countless times by those with a keen eye and vivid imagination--you'll find an endless supply of blurry images to "prove" the monster's existence. Even if you don't believe in Nessie, a trip to Loch Ness offers you the perfect chance to soak up some picturesque Scottish scenery, admire the crumbling ruins of the adjacent castle, and open your mind to the possibilities of the supernatural.
