Oh dear , another myth. >>:-( Look at today`s (sunday 29th April) weather on BBC charts.  Seems like wall to wall sunshine in Scotland, no wind and there will be a couple of thousand skiers on Cairngorm enjoying the crisp fresh snow.  Looks kinda damp in the English parts of the UK. {-)

Thats more water to sail in then O0

Dear Nessie keeps cropping up, I take it the season must be a bit quiet at the moment !

You could be right,...if it is a fish, which i suspect it probably is,its most likely to be a Sturgeon,they can grow to over 4m and weigh in excess of 1100lb,they are primarily bottom feeders...hence one of the reasons why Nessie is rarely seen,and they can live for a very long time,...and it is likely that there is more than one,

The paper story mentions "US Military Monster experts".  Even if there was such a thing, where did he get his training?  Expert in military monsters?  I reckon it was published 4 months and 2 days late.

Well if there were such things you could bet the military would try to use it as a weapon.
They already use dolphins, killer whales etc.

Could someone answer a simple question?
When were the locks in Loch Ness built?
When was Nessie first spotted?
After watching a TV thingy on the box about wildlife in London....well. Seals seem to be pretty clever things. BY.

That would be locks on the Caledonian Canal, 1822 according to en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Caledonian_Canal#History

You forgot about St Columba and the monks of St Benedict Abbey in Fort Augustus . Way long before the 18 or 19th century, 560 ad or thereabouts.
