We came upon the deep blue waters of Loch Ness, a gorgeous lake formed by a fault line running through the center. The lake is 745 feet deep and is the largest by volume in the UK. It is famous for the Loch Ness monster sightings affectionately called “Nessie”. The earliest report of a monster in the vicinity of Loch Ness appears in the Life of St. Columba by Adomnán, written in the sixth century AD. Irish monk St. Columba was staying in the land of the Picts with his companion follower and had him swim across the river Ness to lure the creature. The beast approached him, but Columba made the sign of the cross and said: "Go no further. Do not touch the man. Go back at once." The creature stopped and fled and Columba's men and the Picts gave thanks for what they perceived as a miracle. Modern day reported sightings were documented with the famous “surgeon’s photo” in 1933 which has been confirmed to be a hoax. Despite numerous scientific searches no monster has been found.
