In spring 1933, a John McKay and his wife were travelling along the bank of Loch Ness and suddenly saw a creature that would be later called Loch Ness Monster or Nessie. On November 12 the first photo of Nessie was made public and provided a topic for heated arguments which the parties involved have conducted for 80 years already – whether the photo is genuine or is a fake. Over these 80 years, more than 3,000 cases of eyewitnesses’ evidence have been registered. Nevertheless, the majority of people believe the gigantic reptile to be a myth, like unidentified flying objects (UFO), though many eyewitnesses claim to have seen them with their own eyes. There is even an anecdote: “When does Nessie use to appear? Usually, after the fifth glass of whisky.”
