When my family and i went to Scotland, we didn't miss the chance to camp right on the shores of one of the world's most famous lakes, Loch Ness - said to be the home of a monster, lovingly dubbed Nessie.
My sister, who was only 10 then, woke up one day with my Abah telling her that Nessie herself came ashore, poked her head in our camp and licked her (my sister) face, but she never woke up. We ended up having to console the very upset 10 year old, for meeting Nessie herself would have been very cool!
So everyone, meet Nessie
She is as much a symbol of Scotland as the Scottish bagpipe
and the Scottish Terrier!
