No, I don't really think that there is a monster in the loch ness lake.Maybe some of people created this story to make other people excited or attracted them to visit this place. The other odd I thought in it that story like many imagination myths which there are in lots of cultures . For instance , in my country the Giddiness one of the common myths in countrysides. The myths speaks about strange and scared woman who is appeared after evenings in lakes and start calling certain man who there is near a lake by his name. She continues calling him by strange and magic voice. After that he will become like crazes people and he will not be alive for a long time after that because he will kill himself without clear causes. The thing which make me a little quiet this woman don't hurt girls only men .

Hi everybody,

I did not believe that the Loch Ness monster really exists in environment unless it could be a very big fish. Of course the monster was in minds of people who lived there. And next it became a legend.
I would like to go to Loch Ness to see the lake. I saw a movie about this lake which is big and has lot of sediment from nearby mountains. It is not pure and I wouldn't see anything inside lake. But the landscape would be amazing.
In my country (Poland) is a legend about Dragon from Wawel who lived in a cave by the Vistula River and it breathed fire. Knights fought with him and they were dying. There was a young shoemaker who made the artificial sheep with brimstone inside of it. He gave it for the dragon who ate the sheep and blew itself up.
It was the funny story for children.

Best wishes

I didn't go to Loch Ness before, but If I have a chance to go I would go certainly. Actually, I don't want to go there to see the monster I believe that there is no any monster there but just I want to see the beautiful lake and the landscape.

If I had money, I would travel in the world over.

Hi everyone!
I don´t believed in Lonch ness monster really exist; In my opinion it was an invention to attract tourist, if really existed we would have evidence like photos.
I have never been in Lonch Ness, I really like to go there because it is really beautiful you can appreciate a lot of landscapes.

Well,I'd love to go for a visit to see Loch Ness.Probably it is a beautiful lake.
who knows one day I go there.

Hello every one. I don't believe that the Loch Ness monster really exists. I think that it's a fantastic history that the people invented for tourism. But, I would like to visit Loch Ness. I know that this monster don't exists, but I thinks that this place could be a beauty lake and the landscapre must be wonderful.

As for me I don’t tent to believe in that stories. I won’t believe in something until I see it. Having stories about Loch Ness make this place a very popular point and encourage lots of tourists to visit it. That’s the reason I guess as well as Ravi does.
I’ve never been in Loch Ness point but I wish I would someday. After listening to what Tess said I really believe that’s a beautiful place to see. The Great Britain is rich of awesome natural places.
Instead of my country I’d better notice elves from South of Iceland. I saw on TV how people makes tiny houses on hills. It’s really believed elves are real and require good treatment for them.

I couldn't talk certainly about these things. World is full of strange things and there are many creatures that people don't know anything about, but I never expect to see a monster. I think fables and rumors make these monsters. Maybe there were some monsters in the past. and who knows maybe they are still exist in faraway places, but it is hardly probable to find a living monster in crowded places.
In my country there are fables about some strange creatures, some of them really existed many years ago. My grandmother talking about genies she said she saw them, and there is vally in one of the southern Island of Iran which is named "Star valley" people say genies and gosts living in this valley they appear at night. I went there in the morningi that was really beautiful , there was silent and maybe you afraid if you go alone. but I didn't stay till the night to see the genies and gosts.
By the way though I don't believe in monsters it is possible they be real . people don't have enough science to talk about these things


About Nessie and an old monster in Germany

Have you ever asked yourself how long the lake exists where the monster lives? Maybe it it exists for several tens or hundreds of thousands of years. Only simple creatures like plants or fungi can get that old not complex ones.

If I had to visit Loch Ness on a trip, it would be a waste of time. There is a lot of water in the lake but in my coffee cup is also a lot of water but I must admit not as much as in Loch Ness.

There is a old tale about a monster (a dragon or a snake with a long body, short legs and no or very small wings which eats humans) in the woods where people were fighting against it. The monster stands for the Roman army which was attacked in the woods by Germans tribes.

It was a famous battle because it was the first time that such a large Roman army has been defeated. It was probably important for forming Germany as a nation.
