The Story of Loch Ness

The Story of Loch Ness. Known throughout the world for its legendary inhabitant, Loch Ness has inspired folklore and fascination in the hearts of those who visit it for centuries. But what of the characters, the history and the myths which enchanted inhabitants and travellers alike long before the first sightings of the so-called Loch Ness Monster? Katharine Stewart takes us on a journey through the past and the politics, the heroes and villains, and the natural beauties that are the true source of the magic of Loch Ness. Where did the name Loch Ness come from, and how did Cherry Island come to be? What can be said of the wildlife that makes its home around the loch? Who determined the fate of the Loch Ness valley as we know it today?
While the depths and secrets of Loch Ness may never be revealed entirely, Stewart provides the answers to these and so many other questions in this compelling guide to one of Scotland's most famous places. The Story of Loch Ness.
