Loch Ness is a natural reservoir of tectonic and glacial origin and it is famous for the legendary Loch Ness Monster called Nessie. It is situated in Scotland between the Caledonian and the Grampian Mountains near Inverness. The lake is 34 km long and the deepest point reaches almost 300 m. The greatest affluent to the lake is the Oich River, flowing out of the southern Loch Oich reservoir. It feeds the lake at Fort Augustus. The only river flowing out of the lake is called Ness. Thanks to its strategic position, Loch Ness has become a part of the Caledonian Canal (1822). Later it became an important traffic artery between the Atlantic Ocean and the North Sea. Within the lake proximity there is beautiful, almost untouched nature. The greatest attraction is probably the mysterious Loch Ness Monster, which supposedly lives in the the lake. The first mention of the monster dates all the way back to AD 565. It is said that it looks like an ancient dragon with a long neck and two humps on its back. Since the 1950s, a considerable number of experts and adventurers have been setting off to the lake and have been trying to find traces of the Loch Ness Monster. No documentation or testimony has made it clear though whether the creature inhabits the lake depths or not.
