The Loch Ness Monster
This chapter studies the mystery of the Loch Ness monster. Loch Ness, the UK's largest body of freshwater, is a long, deep lake that lies in a geological fault line called the Great Glen. The first modern Loch Ness monster case appeared in a small news story from 1930, featuring “three young anglers” who had a strange experience while fishing for trout on Loch Ness. Another sighting was that of Aldie and John Mackay in 1933. When small-town reporter Alex Campbell heard that the Mackays had spotted something in the water while driving along the shore of Loch Ness, he wrote a sensationalized story about it for the Inverness Courier, which ran it under the headline “Strange Spectacle on Loch Ness: What Was It?”
