Nessie's image in Loch Ness
Scotland is famous for Loch Ness. Speaking of Loch Ness...it is believed that there is a legendary monster there. The legendary monster has been affectionately referred to by the nickname "Nessie" since the 1950s (my nickname is Bassie!).
Evidence of Nessie's existence is anecdotal, with minimal and much disputed photographic material and sonar readings. The scientific community regards the Loch Ness Monster as a modern-day myth, and explains sightings as a mix of hoaxes and wishful thinking. Despite this, it remains one of the most famous examples of cryptozoology, the study of creatures.
Do you believe in the existence of the Loch Ness Monster? Aside from belief or no belief, I like these mysterious stories! Someday I'd like to visit the Loch Ness and to see Nessie with my very own eyes!!
