Google joins the quest to find the famous Scottish Loch Ness Monster

Many tried and failed in the quest of proving the existence of the mysterious Loch Ness Monster – and now Google has also jumped in the bandwagon.

With the help of divers and local experts, Google deployed its Street View cameras in and around the lake to grab glimpses of the Scottish loch, the famous abode of the cryptid.

Google unveiled a cache of underwater and surface images of the lake, which offers travelers a chance to admire the Highlands scenery or dive into the depths to look for Loch Ness.

The Street View series beautifully offers a glimpse of the ancient Urquhart Castle from the water, Fort Augustus Abbey and the lake seen “from Nessie’s perspective” under the swampy waters.

When conducting a search in the area on Google Maps, the standard yellow ‘Pegman’ transforms into a green Nessie icon that can be released anywhere on the lake to get the view from there.

According to Google, around 200,000 searches are conducted each month for the Loch Ness Monster, and around 120,000 for information and accommodation close to Loch Ness, yet “few people know what the loch even looks like.”

“The Google project was so cloaked in secrecy, when people asked about the ripples in the loch during the special diving expeditions, for once I had no opinion,” said Adrian Shine, a Loch Ness expert who helped realize the project.

“I hope people worldwide enjoy exploring Street View to have a look and then be inspired to travel to Scotland to discover this area of magical beauty and natural intrigue,” he added.
