Loch Ness: Surgeon's Photo

On today's date in 1934, The Daily Mail ran a photo that allegedly shows a creature swimming about in the body of water known as Loch Ness in Scotland. While it wasn't the first reported photograph of the monster, it quickly became more popular than the photo that preceded it. In 1994 a story came out that the famous photo had actually been a hoax, though some details of the story didn't add up, leading some to believe that the story of it being a hoax was the actual hoax.

Pay a visit to Loch Ness and learn more.

Ah, but it makes for such a intriguing story and a great destination. Been there many times. Although most of the locals don't believe there is a Nessy, but they love the tourist dollars (pounds actually :)

And it is a beautiful loch - worth the trip either way.
