Carrie from This Free Bird mentioned that she has an odd fascination with the Loch Ness Monster. Truth be told, I had no clue he was hiding out in Scotland so when I went up to the Highlands it was not on the top of my lists of things to see. But I am so glad I did go because it was one of the most beautiful sights I have ever seen (the Loch, not the monster. Although I'm sure seeing him would have been pretty awesome.)
In order to get close to the Loch Ness you can risk your life climbing down the highway and to the water's edge or pay the admission to get into the Urquhart Castle near Drumnadrochit. I chose the latter. Once on castle grounds I walked down to the Loch's edge where it was shockingly empty. It was really just me and Nessie hanging out for a good chunk of time.
Do you believe he exists?
I can't believe I missed a sighting by just a few days!
