Loch Ness

Description

Famous lake in the Scottish Highlands, best known for it's monster. Nessie is real; and if anyone should know it, it's Traildino! The waters of Loch Ness are deep and murky. The total amount of freshwater - it may interest you - is larger than all lakes of Wales and England combined.

Since people get attracted to the legends and stories of the lake, it is no surprise that a trail has been created, the Great Glen Way. This trail is succesfully competing with other Big Names in Walking.
