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.

Hello Philip Another spectacular walk. We really enjoyed Wales. All accomodations were great especially the Druidstone--lovely place and I think we had the best room in the house--top floor--balcony sea view. We may come back and stay a few days. First day of walking not hard but WINDY and wet. Rest of walk was in beautiful sunny weather. We did find some distances a bit off on hike descriptions ie from Marloes to Druidstone is 15 not 11 but we made it and it made the hotel even more special!! We hope to find another walk perhaps again a coastal one in Devon / Dorset area You do a great job and I have certainly reccommended you to many friends.
