The local legend dates back to early Christian missionary St Columba in the 6th Century AD with the phenomenon resurfacing in 1933 with George Spicer's famous photograph. The mystery is highly profitable with a recent 'Monster Marketing' seminar by the University of the Highlands and Islands designed to help local businesses cash in on the tourist potential.The Loch stretches 37 miles and reaching to 230m deep along the Great Glen fault , connecting the north sea at Inverness with the Atlantic by Corpach at the Atlantic via the Caledonian canal.
