July 2007: Ness Soaps Volunteers Visit The Loch Ness Centre & Exhibition.
At the end of June the staff and volunteers from Ness Soaps took a trip out to visit the Loch Ness Centre & Exhibition at Drumnadrochit. Ness Soaps supplied the Centre with 2 stands of Nessie soaps and different shaped bars in May this year. The staff at the Centre had kindly invited the team out to have a look at where the soaps are displayed for sale.
After a picnic lunch the team learned about the mysteries of Loch Ness during a visit to the very interesting Loch Ness Centre Exhibition. They were then treated to refreshments, courtesy of the Centre.
The team had a fantastic time at the Centre and special thanks must be made to the shop manager, Linda, and the rest of the team for making us all feel so welcome.

Look what Nessie was up to at Tartan Week in New York recently ...
We are delighted to announce that ... Nessie has just been named as the All Time Icon of the Highlands of Scotland!!
Nominations flooded in from across the globe after an initial competition in Scottish Provincial Press titles across the Highlands. The top six most popular icons chosen by the public were put forward to an online poll on the Highland 2007 website.
Always the odds on favourite to win, Nessie beat off competition from Flora Macdonald, Rob Roy Macgregor, Hugh Miller, Simon Fraser of Lovat and Bonnie Prince Charlie to win the coveted title of Highlands and Islands Icon.
Votes came from the USA, Ghana, the Netherlands, Belgium, Canada, Italy, Germany, France, Spain, Luxembourg, Greece and Finland – and throughout the whole of the UK.
Alison Magee, chair of Highland 2007, said: "We are delighted by the response we received for the online vote. It's great to see so many people from all over the world visiting the Highland 2007 website and finding out more about what is happening as part of the year Scotland celebrates Highland culture.
"Nessie is a deserved winner of the title as she is a recognised icon throughout the world and always draws visitors to the Highlands in their hunt for the elusive creature. It is very apt she has been named winner at this time as Nessie and the new film 'Water Horse', which will be released in the USA later this year, attracted lots of attention from the crowds who visited the Scottish Village as part of Tartan Week in New York earlier this month."
