Karl Engel, owner of the Airanloch B&B said: “We are lucky enough to get a stunning view of Loch Ness every day and we never tire of it. To have one of the webcams here, knowing that it is being watched by potentially millions of people around the world is just amazing and we hope it inspires people to come and visit Inverness and Loch Ness.”
At 23 miles long, one mile wide and over 400 feet deep Loch Ness has more fresh water than than all the lakes in England and Wales combined.
The loch is also highly popular among sports enthusiasts, especially boaters, sailors, anglers, kayakers and wild swimmers. The lack of light pollution also means it’s a highly desirable destination for romantics eager to catch a glimpse of the aurora borealis or Northern Lights.
Chris Taylor, VisitScotland Regional Leadership Director, said: “Loch Ness is renowned the world over for its most elusive resident, Nessie, but these cameras will also give people from around the world the chance to see how beautiful the loch and its surrounds are, as well as possibly spotting some local wildlife – on or off the water!
“By having the opportunity to see Loch Ness from so many different viewpoints, more potential visitors will be inspired to travel to this beautiful part of the Highlands, to see for themselves why it is such a must-visit destination.
“In Scotland’s Year of Stories, it is great to see Visit Inverness Loch Ness offering people around the globe the chance to catch sight of Nessie – the subject of so many myths, tales and stories over the years.”
