The Complete Visitor's Guide to Loch... Ness. Loch Ness, with its fabled monster, plays host to over 500,000 visitors every year, boasting more interest than Stonehenge and other popular attractions put together. This guidebook offers comprehensive coverage of Inverness - capital of and gateway to the Highlands - as well as the isolated villages surrounding Loch Ness. It includes listings on accommodation, visitor attractions, restaurants, and sections on children, entertainment and nightlife, shopping for all needs, transport and leisure activities. Having interviewed leading "Nessie" researchers, the author also gives a factual account of the scientific search for Britain's most elusive resident. Adrian Shine, Alistair Boyd and David Martin - who exposed the infamous "Surgeon's Photograph" as a fake, Dr Bob Rhines, and the most famous monster hunter of them all, the late Tim Dinsdale: each have played a part in the search for the answer to the 20th century's most baffling enigma, and this book recounts their efforts.

Inverness: A History Inverness, the capital of the Highlands, is now Scotland's youngest city, a vibrantly growing community and the main destination for all tourists who seek their Highland roots or that more elusive creature - Nessie. Inverness's history, however, belies its peaceful present. Founded by Scotland's monarchs as a strategic outpost on a wild frontier, the royal burgh on the Ness has been caught up time and again in the struggles that mark Highland and British history. Over the centuries rebels against Lowland rule, the forces of Robert Bruce, followers of the Lord of the Isles, the English soldiers of Cromwell's army, and Jacobites have swaggered through its streets. Here, too, have come some of the great figures in Scotland's story - from Columba, Mary Queen of Scots, the Marquis of Montrose, and Prince Charles Edward Stuart to Johnson and Boswell. Through the troubles the merchants and burgesses struggled to make their town a pleasant, well-ordered community where commerce could flourish and the visitor would be welcome.
