Description

This redesigned edition brings the natural history of Loch Ness up to date - the story of the search for the elusive Loch Ness Monster. The centrepiece shows the loch as it is today, with a cross-sectional illustration detailing the underlying geology of this 23-mile-long lake. Locator maps are also included to show the geographical position of the loch and its relationship to the surrounding landscape. Another feature is the inclusion of Sir John Murray's "Bathymetrical Survey of the Scottish Fresh Water Lochs", dating back to 1903. The text takes the reader through the developments in the search for "Nessy", from the first sightings in 565 AD to modern-day sonar scanning technology and the scientific study of the loch's ecology. The visual presentation makes this title suitable as a wall poster.show more
