Olympic Torch to cross Loch Ness

It's a busy weekend at Loch Ness, on top of the annual RockNess music festival which is guaranteed to keep our noise sensitive Nessie firmly underwater, a possibly unique event will come to pass as the Olympic Torch traverses the Great Glen (map from below).

As some may know, the torch has been going up Britain carried by the great and the good, the famous and not so famous people of these isles. The torch is scheduled to arrive at the southern end of Loch Ness just after 4pm and then proceed up the A82 and then cross the loch to the music festival.

A good time for Nessie to surface with all those professional newscaster cameras around, but I wouldn't hold out too much hope! More details here.

POSTSCRIPT: Looks like the old "Loch Ness Hoodoo" of stuck cameras afflicted the BBC as their live webfeed of the road journey disappeared somewhere north of Invermoriston and did not come back till they were beyond Loch Ness and heading into Inverness!

  1. I was hoping that Nessie would finally make an appearance, on live television! However, I do, indeed, realize that the RockNess music festival must have kept poor old Nessie way down in the depths, for sure! ;)
