I'm so glad he clarified that. That makes me feel so much better about the whole thing.

What was my mood, again?

Don't get me wrong, I would love to belive that the loch ness monster (And other lake monsters for that matter) were real but I belive that they're not.

I am Scottish and have lived in Inverness and had a good few chats with locals and sorry, I still don't buy it.


1.Nobody seems to be able to photograph one clearly and their bodies never wash ashore. (The locals all refer to it as "The Loch never gives up it's secrets.")

2.You need several monsters to maintain a population, and most lakes simply don't contain enough fish to support a Family of giant Predators.

3.Legend has it that there are secet caves it could live in. There aren't.(Project Urquharts sonar scan proved this)

4.A plessiasaur (Dunno if thats spelt correctley) breathed air. How come nessie is only seen once every blue moon? Granted Loch Ness is big. I mean BIG, but the amount of sightings don't tally with the amount of times it would need to come up for air.

5.I found this on a website by Edward Willett and he makes a very interesting point.

Submerged logs bobbing to the surface could account for some sightings. When a pine tree sinks to the bottom of the lake, water squeezes the trunk, forcing out resin, creating a water-proof skin. As the trunk decays, gases form inside it. Eventually this gas causes the trunk to rise. As it nears the surface, the pressure decreases, and the gas escapes through the resin, producing foaming and an audible hiss, while the trunk rolls around. After just a moment, the trunk sinks again...while astonished viewers are still scrambling for a camera.

Look at any lake where ther is a monster, be it in Canada, Norway or Scotland and you find.... Pine Trees! Everywhere!

In most recent scan of Loch Ness nothing was found and the guy who conducted it said "If Nessie was there, we'd have been able to see the air in it's lungs."

I would love to see undeniable proof that Nessie lives but in my eyes, all it is is legend and a damn good tourist attraction.

Oh yeah, my original point is that foolish American is just gonna do a lot of searching in a big murky Loch!

Thanks for that information. I had never heard of Project Urquhart before now. I had always felt that the most probable explanation for a lake monster was that if they do exist, perhaps they travelled to the lakes via underground channels perhaps to breed or raise their young. This now seems to be not the case as from what I could find out, the loch "proved to be a very regular steep walled trench." However, on the same website, they did say that the project turned up some evidence which could'nt be easily explained. From

On Tuesday the 28 of July 1992 at around 7pm the Simrad research ship was heading south between Foyers and Invermoriston when the automatic tracking sonar locked on to a target and held it for around 2 minutes. Thor Edland, the Simrad specialist who was operating the sonar at the time, described it as a very strong echo in comparison to the fish traces they had been recording.
During the 1993 operations the Simrad sonar aboard the Calanus recorded 4 sonar contacts in mid water.
Birnie Lees, the senior Simrad engineer who studies the traces described them as "strong high value targets ". One in particular he said was "far too large to be one of the lochs known fish".


A new mini monster has been found in the loch, but again sonar contacts have been recorded at the loch this time by people who were not even looking for the monster. Again the sonar screen shows us that something large is moving around in the depths of the loch that should not be in a freshwater loch in the middle of the Highlands of Scotland.

So I can only wonder at what it is the sonar is spotting.

Not a clue!

There is something that may be worth looking at. Try searching for werner herzog? As far as I can remeber he was a german film director that did a recent survey of Loch Ness and had some interesting videos and a story behind.

Check it out.
