He bashes sceptics a lot – as if being sceptical about Nessie is a bad thing or represents poor life choice – and has written at length about the motivations that, he thinks, drive sceptics and their scepticism. He started out as a journalist, studying at the Edinburgh College of Commerce, and winning the Fraser Award aged just 21 for his writing.

So this is the story of Ishbel and Kenneth, the treasure they believe lies under Urquhart Castle, the risks they’re prepared to take to find that treasure so they can feed their hungry family, and the even bigger risk swimming below them as they row across Loch Ness. Millions of years ago, the northern tip of Scotland was a separate island, until it crashed into the mainland.Lari Don's narrative is evocative and totally engaging as she draws the reader in to this most mystical tale.

One of the best things about our particular copy of the book is that a previous owner left annotations. I provided a very brief review of this book at TetZoo ver 3 back in 2017 but always planned to produce a longer version. And the illustrations are a beautiful depiction of what makes Scotland great -- mystery, beauty and magic! Nataša Ilinčić is an artist and illustrator originally from Croatia, now living and working in Edinburgh. Weird that an object which I say looks like a swan also has what looks like a swan’s leg and what looks like a swan’s pointed tail.She is the illustrator of The Treasure of the Loch Ness Monster and The Legend of the First Unicorn. Beautifully illustrated in rich warm tones, Loch Ness and its wonderful sea monster come to life for the reader. The book begins with a look back at the making of Solved, the responses to it, and a series of updates on the book’s main (human) characters. Hallewell Publications is a small publishing house based in Argyll which concentrates largely on a single project: a popular series of walking guides which covers Scotland and selected areas of England.

The double-strike areas (featuring pale triangular patches) indicate double-exposure (that is, the film failed to move on and was exposed again). And this is the picture book debut of the wonderful Natasa Ilincic, who has created the most beautiful monster I’ve ever seen. Should I be writing about it, and encouraging an interest in it, on a blog ostensibly devoted to the scientific study of the natural world? Steve Forbes) represents one of the most significant collections handled by Peter Harrington in more than 50 years as booksellers,. Binns then retreads two classic sightings – that of Donaldina Mackay and the Spicers – albeit with new information.

Similarly, Binns’s treatment of Tim Dinsdale, the well-meaning and likeable champion of the LNM from 1960 until his death in 1987, discusses Dinsdale’s propensity to be all too impressionable, and with ideas that were not in keeping with his claim that he was always objective and basing everything monster-related on sound science. He interviewed as many witnesses as possible, including the Spicers, and investigated various theories for the sightings, such as the idea that the monster was a prehistoric creature, or perhaps a normal sea animal that had swum into the loch by accident. Known affectionately as ‘Nessie’, this elusive creature has been chased with great zeal for over a century (it has been seen by over 1000 people) and this enthusiasm shows no sign of diminishing. It’s well written, entertaining and absorbing if you’re familiar with any aspects of LNM lore, and in fact is probably the LNM-themed book I’ve enjoyed reading the most. I think the wonderful illustrations, along with a beautifully told tale, in simple language is a triumph!
