Tourist slates Loch Ness due to Nessie no-show

A visitor to the world-famous loch left a scathing review on TripAdvisor because his family didn't see the monster.
Just about everyone who visits Loch Ness will have cast their eyes across the water, hoping to catch a glimpse of some mysterious creature rising up from its murky depths.

There are some, however, who believe that the mysterious beast has an obligation to appear.

In a recent TripAdvisor review, a man known only as 'Ron' left what can only be described as a scathing review of the loch based solely on the fact that the monster didn't show up.
The Grimsby resident maintained that he was "very disappointed" that his family didn't catch a glimpse of the Loch Ness Monster during their recent visit to the Highlands.

"We travelled 400 miles from Grimsby to see the Loch Ness monster and it didn't show up," he wrote. "DON'T GO if you are wanting to see it because you will end up bitterly disappointed like we were."

"Wife and 2 kids waited around for hours, view points were crowded and dirty and the weather was terrible one moment, sunshine the next, it was hard to keep up."

"I thought the whole experience was horrendous. I wish I hadn't bothered. It's just a tourist trap and not sure why they would advertise the Loch Ness monster when it's all a lie."

It's been a real hot summer here in Scotia and like most of us Scots, she doesn't take the sun too well.  It's a ginger thing.  He wants to come back when it's drizzle, she'll be on the shore talking to some local fishermen.

Damn, are you suggesting Nessie is nothing but a vague folk memory of a Viking drakkar??

That's the biggest disappointment since I was at the Pont D'Avignon and there was no dancing there

People write poor reviews all the time.  Whether it is a restaurant or a hotel.

I have heard or read that one can be sued for writing a negative review , especially if it affects that business.

I hope that is not true.   If it is then we should be able to sue companies that plant good reviews of their products.   Maybe you can do both.

This idea is not new:   Nessie left here by the Vikings FURTHER to your article “Desperately seeking Nessie” (The Week, 24 February), your readers may be interested to know that a fellow pupil of mine at the Abbey School, Fort Augustus, has written a book, The First And Lost Iona: A ­Secret History Of Fort ­Augustus, in which he provides a convincing explanation of the Loch Ness Monster.
