Folk have long held the suspicion that the government in Westminster doesn’t really care much about what happens up here and that view seems to be confirmed by recent evidence that plague tests were carried out off the coast of Stornoway. We’ve been doing some digging and found that they also had bad plans for Loch Ness too…
I have just watched the movie The Evil Beneath Loch Ness and it has to be called a classic of all time. Shot on location in California, the imitation Scottish accents and extraordinary clothes make this film a “can’t be missed” for all Loch Ness aficionados.
One thing this film does highlight, correctly in my opinion, is the possibility for a tunnel linking Loch Ness to the North Sea. While the tunnel may not be open all the time, powerful seismic events in the active earthquake zone under Loch Ness (the Great Glen Fault) ensure that it may open from time to time, thereby letting a monster enter and leave the loch.
A geriatric self-publicist has made his latest (and hopefully last) trip to Loch Ness to find the monster. Surprise, surprise he’s managed to find some “organic material” (ie. crud) at the bottom of the loch and apparently it’s going off for “dna analysis” to labs in the UK and USA. Well, he’s got the right to waste his own money!
We get them all here, from the naked Frenchman who sailed out onto Loch Ness on a boat covered with stretch-tight black polythene while beating a drum (to raise Nessie from the depths!) to crazed Swedes hell-bent on trapping a monster to lunatic old men who squander their life savings on homespun submarines. And then of course there is the proliferation of heavily bearded local “experts”.
Life here is crazy. This blog will serve as a testament to that!
