So Nessie could be a wave? Got it.
People most definitely do visit Loch Ness for Cryptozoology, they may combine it with other things but there’s a small group. Heck Steve Feltham moved here for Cryptozoology.Now, does anyone go to Scotland for Crypotozoology??
I thought the Scottish economy was based upon whisky and golf.
My canoe friends love scottish lochs but I have never once heard them refer to loch ness...its loch tay and lomond, maree and morar they frequent
Another friend went to Inverness...not loch ness.
I've done the length of the loch a few times on a motorbike, usually along the A82 which runs along the north west shore. I have once done the length along the south east shore, which often takes you further from the water, but higher up, so you get a completely different view. There are places where you can easily get to the waterside, though — and who could resist watching for a few minutes, just in case... ? A favourite view is from the very end of the loch (SW end) where you can get to the water and look straight up the Great Glen. Magnificent.So, yes maybe the legend does draw in tourists with their money - but there was far less deliberate targetting of this than I would have expected.

As i have said for decades, if there is a Loch Ness Monster then it's probably a giant eel. Giant eels are much more credible than the parasitic, entitled, animal abusing, over privileged, inbred, upper class tory party.
Not habitually but i think these long necked reports are reffering to something else, maybe an occational visitor from the open sea. I don't think that they are prehistoric reptiles in the Loch,Yes, but I'm thinking that's not enough to give the appearance of a 'Loch Ness monster'.
It is taken from the Milwaukee (Wisconsin) Journal of May 7th 1937.
