Loch Ness Centre & Exhibition


The Loch Ness Centre & Exhibition


An insight into the loch's wider significance. Designed and narrated by Loch Ness Project leader, the naturalist Adrian Shine.


Whilst keeping the mystery centre stage, it is placed firmly into the context of a loch with rare & unusual properties: some still motivate expeditions while others can "create" monsters. Here are the results of that exploration, using the very latest multi-media system, original research equipment and authentic underwater films.


Scotland's Journey

Legend & Eyewitness


Legend & Eyewitness ...


On one hand, the loch's famous "Jurassic Park" reputation, 1000 reliable eye-witnesses and some classic photography. On the other hand, hoaxes and illusions, Scotland's journey and the legacy of the ice, life in the abyss and a possible underlying truth.


Everything about Loch Ness that you can't see by looking at it!

The Loch Ness Centre & Exhibition


Using a highly effective mix of lasers, digital projection and special effects Loch Ness charts the history of the monster by exploring Scotland's geological past, its folklore and the various research projects carried out on the loch. It also reveals the discoveries of some of that research including the environmental fingerprints left in the loch's layers by both nature and mankind.
