Loch Ness, with its fabled monster, plays host to over 500,000 visitors every year, boasting more interest than Stonehenge and other popular attractions put together. This guidebook offers comprehensive coverage of Inverness - capital of and gateway to the Highlands - as well as the isolated villages surrounding Loch Ness. It includes listings on accommodation, visitor attractions, restaurants, and sections on children, entertainment and nightlife, shopping for all needs, transport and leisure activities. Having interviewed leading "Nessie" researchers, the author also gives a factual account of the scientific search for Britain's most elusive resident. Adrian Shine, Alistair Boyd and David Martin - who exposed the infamous "Surgeon's Photograph" as a fake, Dr Bob Rhines, and the most famous monster hunter of them all, the late Tim Dinsdale: each have played a part in the search for the answer to the 20th century's most baffling enigma, and this book recounts their efforts.
