Nessie, the creature supposedly inhabiting Scotland's mysterious Loch Ness, is undoubtedly one of the most well-known monsters in the world. Sightings started popping up in the late 19th century and ever since, Nessie has held the world's attention and the myth has refused to die. Visitors wishing to learn more about the legends surrounding Loch Ness can do so at Nessieland Castle Monster Centre in Drumnadrochit. While this miniature theme park is aimed at children, it offers plenty of educational displays. There are lots of newspaper clippings reporting sightings, grainy photographs and display panels explaining the mystery of the Loch Ness Monster. A multilingual documentary takes visitors on the hunt for Nessie and not only shows eyewitness accounts, but also underwater searches that have been taking place since the 1970s. Whether you end up being a believer or not, Nessieland offers a lot of fun. Kids especially enjoy the supposedly life-sized Nessie model that can be ridden, the large adventure playground and the caves. Of course, there is also a gift shop where the corresponding Nessie memorabilia can be purchased.

I'm not going to add much more to this location -- Tripemator8000 described it much better than I ever could have -- if you can go, great. If not, you haven't missed much more than a tourist trap. We headed over to the coffee shop...More

Facts are interesting, but £20 for a family ticket is a total waste. It took us less than 1/2 hour with reading most of the information. It's a bit tired and run down and the first voice over is by a lady with a foreign...More

We visited with 3 young children after taking them to the official visitor center which although well organized and informative, wasn't particularly child friendly. We paid a ridiculous amount to enter basically a large room covered in newspaper articles and photographs. Nothing child friendly at...More

Children had seen this when passing through on a previous visit so made a point of visiting it this time round. Loads of interesting facts and pictures. Kids loved the movie and the layout. Good for all ages. Especially loved unexpectedly seeing Jamie Fraser 💞💞
