Quite a large freshwater lake Loch Ness is 37 miles west of Inverness. It is formed by geological faults : Great Glen, is part of the Caledonian Canal , which connects the eastern and western seaboard of Scotland. Most of the lakes in this part of the country is not of glacial origin , Loch Ness is no exception. The lake water is muddy and has a high content of a specific shade of peat soil in the bottom. Lake in Scotland is the second largest by volume of water and the largest , it is not particularly scenic , but the truth is just so unattractive. Vegetation on the lake is quite meager and monotonous landscape around him striking beauty lines. Due to the fact that in calm weather lake almost motionless , there was an attempt to set a world speed record on water. Unfortunately, the attempt ended tragically , and now on the lake monument to John Cobb, who died on a scooter with a jet engine when you try to beat the previous record . Despite all this , the lake is one of the most visited attractions . Reason for the popularity of Loch Ness is in many legends associated with the huge monster supposedly living in the lake. Legend of Loch Ness spring of 1933 journalist Alex Campbell was published in the press articles about how John McKay and his wife , standing on the beach watching a strange animal , looking out of the water . Journalist reason called animal monster . Since then , it all began. Himself Alex Campbell began to spend a lot of time on the lake , and, ostensibly , not just watching the amazing inhabitants of the lake . Yeah, except it was a lot of witnesses. Disparate eyewitness allowed to create a "portrait" of this mysterious creature . It turned out that the " Loch Ness monster " has a body length of more than 6 meters, the three-meter with a small head, neck , three humpback and skin color that varies from light gray to dark brown. Interestingly, some of the witnesses were able to provide photographs , and the company "Kodak" confirmed the authenticity of the negatives . Monster was the affectionate nickname Nessie and became the object of interest of professionals who along and across the steel plow the lake in search of evidence for the existence of Nessie . Drive power was not only of scientific interest , but also a financial incentive . Used different methods, but none of them has yielded reliable results. This does not prevent curious tourists eager for miracles , go to Loch Ness and just looked at it with water , hoping to see a pretty face above the surface of the Loch Ness Monster with guile ( and what they may still be ) Eyes ?

In Scotlandabout 800 Islands, one of the most attractive for tourists is the island of
Arran, which lies in the Bay of the Firth of Clyde off the West coast of
Scotland. Geological fault divided the island into two parts with very
different reliefs. In the North of the island is mountainous peaks and
waterfalls, and in the South of the plain with low hills and picturesque sandy
beaches. Only one road on the island, it passes along the perimeter, and only a
few paths branching off from it and goes deep into the island.

The island is credited with mystical properties. Here are the megalithic
gallery tomb and the stone rings, which in ancient times was used for ritual
purposes.

On the island you can see the white deer. In Celtic mythology white deer animal
that connects the real world with the hereafter.

The village Brodick is the capital of the island of Arran. Its main attraction
is the castle of the same name. In our days, it belongs to one of the most famous
Scottish families - the Dukes of Gamiltona, and is a cozy family nest with
typical interiors Scotland, as before, in ancient times, it was important
defensive works. They say that after the death of any member of this family,
his soul becomes white deer and continues to live on the island.
