Nessie, the creature supposedly inhabiting Scotland's mysterious Loch Ness, is undoubtedly one of the most well-known monsters in the world. Sightings started popping up in the late 19th century and ever since, Nessie has held the world's attention and the myth has refused to die. Visitors wishing to learn more about the legends surrounding Loch Ness can do so at Nessieland Castle Monster Centre in Drumnadrochit. While this miniature theme park is aimed at children, it offers plenty of educational displays. There are lots of newspaper clippings reporting sightings, grainy photographs and display panels explaining the mystery of the Loch Ness Monster. A multilingual documentary takes visitors on the hunt for Nessie and not only shows eyewitness accounts, but also underwater searches that have been taking place since the 1970s. Whether you end up being a believer or not, Nessieland offers a lot of fun. Kids especially enjoy the supposedly life-sized Nessie model that can be ridden, the large adventure playground and the caves. Of course, there is also a gift shop where the corresponding Nessie memorabilia can be purchased.

We didn't actually pay to go into the exhibit but we still managed to get plenty of the flavor of Nessie stuff in the adjacent gift shop. Fun, silly statues of the monster just outside are maybe worth a photo. The staff was friendly and...More

went as part of trip, was ok for as a stop over, use of loo etc. A cafe, which was quite expensive, and a few shops which were expensive. All in all an ok place.

This place is just a goldmine for the owners. The principle seems to be we might as well rip them off as they won't be back anyway. Promises much and dleivers little - outside was dirty and in places dangerous for young children. Food vastly...More

Small place with very few games for children and very messy as outside. The museum only states general facts and is dark and not welcoming. The price is too expensive for this. It's mainly a shop but then again no interesting things in stock.

We drove by Loch Ness in our camper van. The children were really into the idea of the Loch Ness monster. If you want to find out all about it in a fun and children friendly way, visit Nessieland! Every artefact, every photo, every theory...More
