Hi everybody, I agree with most of the comments. I don’t think so there are any monsters in the world. Majority of them are creations of myths and fables. Technology has advanced so far that if there are any monsters they must have captured till now.
I have not been to Scotland yet but hope to see it soon. I have not heard any monster stories of my country yet.

I think it's possible that a monster would had lived in the lake hundred of thousands of years ago, like the Megalodon in the oceans, but if nowadays something like that still be living there, someone would had taken a good photo of it already with all the technology that we have to do it.
I have never been to Scotland so I never visited the loch Ness, but I'd love to visit the loch someday, it sounds fascinating.
There aren't very much stories about monsters in my country, but in the countryside some people tell stories about a half-man half-wolf that visits the farms at nights and eats sheep, but it's difficult to believe because we don't have wolfs in this country, I think there are just fantastic invented to scare the children at the dark nights in the winter.

Thanks for the episode.
Great site!!

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.
