Loch Ness Monster Tour and Multimedia Experience
Tour Participation Requirements
It's inky dark in color, 23 miles long, about a mile wide, and really deep – as in 750 feet. Do the math: that's a lot of hiding space for Nessie. Or a whole family of them, for that matter.
Yet despite hundreds of expeditions using every kind of contraption known to man, no one searching the waters of the Loch has found anything that proves the existence of this plesiosaur or giant squid or humongous sturgeon or mass whisky-induced hallucination.
But science marches on. And today, so will you, as we drive through rolling, scenic Scottish countryside to unpronounceable Drumnadrochit, the loch-side town that's absolute Ground Zero for Nessie hunting. After being treated to a pretty magnificent high overlook of the loch on the approach to town, you'll enter the famed Loch Ness Centre and Exhibition. This multimedia sanctuary of knowledge and myth uses lasers, digital projection, and special effects to chart the monster's history by exploring Scotland's geological past, its folklore, and the many research projects carried out to confirm – or disprove – Nessie's existence.
By the way, the earliest known monster sighting was that of Irish monk St. Columba, who on a pilgrimage here in 565 reportedly commanded the beast "to return to whence it came" after it reared out of the Loch and threatened an unsuspecting swimmer.
The most recent was this morning. We’re investigating it. Just a heads up.
But enough about Nessie; the real star of this tale is Ranulph
That's short for Sir Ranulph Twisleton-Wykeham-Fiennes, 3rd Baronet, OBE: noted adventurer and endurance record holder, whose star power juiced up the expanded Loch Ness Centre's reopening in 1999. This is a guy who circled the globe vertically, across both Poles. Explored the White Nile by hovercraft. Was almost cast as James Bond. And impatiently amputated his own frostbitten fingertips when his doc didn't do it fast enough. Okay, WOW to all that.
