Overview

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.

This was a gem to find to pick up those great little gifts for family and friends. Especially good to pick up something for younger children into the Loch Ness Monster!

The NessieLand brings enough of reproduced articles and data to remember the Nessie-news you read or heard about in the past. It includes old and new stuff but requires some reading. They do open earlier if needed and can be a saver if you’re short...More

We were driving along Loch Ness and spotted Nessieland. Intrigued by the stuff they have there for people to see. Very informative and kids will also enjoy the show.

They have a LOT for sale and a great atmosphere. Shame we didn’t realise that there was a Nessie exhibit at the rear until we had run out of time.
