Loch Ness

Scotland is famous for its fresh water lakes - or lochs - and rightly so; there are over 600 square miles of them! One of the most famous, of course, is Loch Ness where a mysterious monster is said to dwell. But did you know that Ness (possibly meaning ‘rushing’) is also the name of the river that flows from the loch?

And Loch Ness isn’t the only Scottish lake rumoured to have a resident beastie. There is Morag, the monster of Loch Morar, for a start, Archie of Loch Arkaig, Lizzie of Loch Lochy, Wee Oichy of Loch Oich, and Quiochy of Loch Quoich. On top of those, there are another sixteen lochs where strange creatures have allegedly been sighted.

Scottish Miscellany is full of fascinating facts like these. Pre-order your copy today.
