What will happen if they discover Nessie

06 July 2018

What happens if someone catches the Loch Ness Monster?

A Scottish government-funded body has a plan in place if the Loch Ness Monster should ever be found. Scottish Natural Heritage (SNH) prepared the "partly serious, partly fun" code of practice in 2001 amid a period of intense interest in Nessie. This year's interest has been piqued by scientists gathering DNA from the loch, and Scotland's first minister saying she believes there is a monster. SNH said it would "dust off" the plan if Nessie was discovered. The code of practice was drawn up to offer protection to new species found in the loch, including a monster. It stipulates that a DNA sample should be taken from any new creature, and then it should be released back into the loch.

Walking The Great Glen is a good way to get a chance of spotting The Loch Ness Monster.

Hi Philip, I just wanted to let you know that we had an excellent walking trip last week through Exmoor. All of your arrangements worked out as promised, we had no significant problems with any details or with the navigation, the walk and the weather were excellent, and we really enjoyed the places you picked for us to stay. We will strongly consider using Explore Britain again in the future. Thanks very much.
