It’s been 81 years…
Since the first Loch Ness picture was published on April 21 1934. Of course, this was revealed to be fake The Sunday Telegraph in 1975. Still, the hunt for Nessie continues.
Today’s Google doodle to celebrate 81 years of curiosity. Google, however, took it one step further…
Google explains that there are around 200,000 searches every month for the Loch Ness Monster, and 120,000 search for information and hotels close to Loch Ness, but few people know what the loch looks like. So, for the anniversary of one of the biggest stories of folk lore the world has known, Google set up street view for the Loch Ness.
For a week, Google collected images around the loch, and even attached a camera onto a boat to cover all the surface area.
They even explored the depths of the loch, with help from Catlin Seaview Survey.
There’s a Street View Nessie Pegman dressed as Nessie to help you explore the area. Or click here for a direct link.
Nessie hunters are already debating this new image. Is it the monster we’ve been searching for for 81 years now? Or is… like, a log?
