The mysterious waters of Loch Ness from near the Abbey at Fort Augustus.  The loch is famous for supposedly being inhabited by a humped monster, "Nessie" and there are two exhibitions devoted to this theme at nearby Drumnadrochit.

Fort Augustus is an attractive village situated at the southwestern end of Loch Ness on the Caledonian Canal.  This is the closest I came to seeing Nessie!
