Of all of the many Nessie-related subjects documented by me down through the years (and now collected together in my forthcoming book Here’s Nessie: A Monstrous Compendium From Loch Ness), few have incited as many inquiries to me from readers and correspondents as the extraordinary ‘frog as big as a goat’ supposedly sighted one day by diver Duncan Macdonald while underwater in Loch Ness during the late 1800s.

This Day in History: Loch Ness Monster Sighted

Posted by: Craig Woolheater on May 2nd, 2016

Although accounts of an aquatic beast living in Scotland’s Loch Ness date back 1,500 years, the modern legend of the Loch Ness Monster is born when a sighting makes local news on May 2, 1933. The newspaper Inverness Courier related an account of a local couple who claimed to have seen “an enormous animal rolling and plunging on the surface.” The story of the “monster” (a moniker chosen by the Courier editor) became a media phenomenon, with London newspapers sending correspondents to Scotland and a circus offering a 20,000 pound sterling reward for capture of the beast.

The Loch Ness Monster, bigfoot and the yeti have long held a fascination for people the world over. Debates about their actual existence or what they might really be have continued for decades, if not centuries. Known also as cryptids, they have spawned a body of research known as cryptozoology. This entertaining book looks at the evidence of these mysterious monsters and others and explores what they might really be (if they exist at all), why they have been represented as they have and the development of cryptozoology and how it has collected data to discover more about these unknown creatures.

How The Earth Was Made: Loch Ness

Posted by: Craig Woolheater on November 4th, 2015

On this incredible journey we reveal that Loch Ness was once part of America, giant dinosaurs, suspiciously similar to the fabled monster once roamed the area, and that the entire region was engulfed by huge volcanic eruptions as Scotland was ripped from its birth place on the American continent. Could the mythical Loch Ness monster be a descendant of the dinosaurs, somehow surviving in the murky waters of the loch?
