The Scottish mythology storyboard of the Loch Ness Monster.
In the Scottish folklore the Loch Ness Monster (or just simply Nessie) is a monster known to inhabit the Loch ness in the Scottish Highlands.
The earliest report of the Loch Ness Monster appeared in the 'Life of St. Columba Written by Columba's cousin in the sixth century. The events describes Irish monk Saint Columba was currently staying in the land of the Picts (Highlands).
He then encountered local residents burying a man by the River Ness. The residents explained that the man was swimming when he was attacked by a water monster which mauled him and dragged him underwater, although they tried to save him in a boat, he was dead.
Columba then sent a follower to swim across the river. The Loch Monster approached him but Columba made the sign of the cross and said "Go no further, do not touch the man. Go back at once." The creature stopped has stopped as if pulled back with ropes and fled. The Picts and the other residents reckoned this was a miracle.
Ever since the first report, more other reports have been of the mysterious Loch Ness Monster. The latest sighting was in 1934 with a photograph, where others after that was believed as a hoax.
Now in the modern day, when people look at the famous Loch Ness some think its a hoax and others believe its real, all in all its a mystery.
