Castle Urquhart Loch Ness
I tried to bridge a connection between nessy and Aleister Crowley .
Aleister Crowley's House At Loch Ness
You see Crowley worked on a spell at Loch Ness , one of the longest he had ever worked on ,somewhere around 6 months i believe.
I after his time their Sightings started to occur.
If i recall correctly the legend of dragons had been around in that area for century's before they dammed up Loch Ness when it was just a small river or stream .
The first recorded sighting of the monster was in 565 AD. St Columba, while on a mission to convert the northern Picts, stopped off by the loch side to preach to some local people. While Columba was preaching there was a disturbance in the waters and the monster appeared. By some accounts one man was slain only to be returned to life by the divine powers of the saint. By other accounts the monster attacked a member of the congregation, at which point the saint made the sign of the cross and invoked the power of God to drive the beast away.
Anyway It's been years since I looked into this but I am not fully sure if Crowley finished his spell or not , maybe another member with more knowledge can fill us in
There will be smaller processing plants such as the controversial one which was dumping semi processed human waste at the Visitor Centre at Urquhart Castle some years back.
