About the Story

True Story of the Loch Ness Monster, The

The Loch Ness Monster, which is rumoured to live in the Loch Ness in the Scottish Highlands, is lovingly referred to as “Nessie,” and gained worldwide recognition in the 1930s. The 1934 photo (above), referred to as the “Surgeon’s Photograph,” is considered the most famous photo of Nessie as it was the first photo to reveal the head and neck of the creature. However, this iconic photo was deemed a hoax in 1994. Over the years, sightings of the Loch Ness Monster have been explained as either deliberate hoaxes or have been attributed to the presence of a large eel, an elephant, otters, deer, birds, seals, an extinct long-necked aquatic reptile (the plesiosaur), a partially submerged pine tree trunk, boat wakes, optical effects, the release of gas from a fault line located beneath the loch, and folkloric kelpies or “water horses” who were thought to devour weary travellers.
