Highland Tour, Day 3

Day 3 was spent exploring the area around Loch Ness.

The Loch Ness monster was first ‘spotted’ in 565AD by St. Columba.  His boat was untied and floated in the lake, so he hired a servant to go get it.  And the servant was attacked by a monster!  He brought out his cross and banished the monster.

It was most famously seen in 1933 when a surgeon photographed the lake and saw something in the developed film.

Unfortunately it was a bit of a gloomy day, so I decided to walk into town and by the canal, instead of going for a boat ride on the lake.

And that night I watched Braveheart for the first time.  Kinda appropriate to watch it in Scotland, don’t you think?
