Webcams have been installed at Loch Ness to allow people to hunt for Nessie 365 days a year.

The cameras have been placed along the loch by Visit Inverness Loch Ness (VILN).

They are located at the Craigdarroch Hotel, Drovers Lodge, Shoreland Lodges Fort, Loch Ness Clansman Hotel and Airanloch B&B.

Michael Golding, CEO at Visit Inverness Loch Ness, said that people will also be able to watch Loch Ness from across the world through the changing seasons.

“We are delighted to be able to provide live footage of the beautiful Loch Ness every day of the year,” he said.

“For people all over the world to watch Loch Ness through the changing seasons and get a glimpse of the beautiful scenery and abundant wildlife is very special.

“Of course, the webcams will also give Nessie fans another way of spotting our elusive and most popular resident.”

Chris Taylor, VisitScotland regional leadership director, added: “Loch Ness is renowned the world over for its most elusive resident, Nessie, but these cameras will also give people from around the world the chance to see how beautiful the loch and its surrounds are, as well as possibly spotting some local wildlife – on or off the water!

“By having the opportunity to see Loch Ness from so many different viewpoints, more potential visitors will be inspired to travel to this beautiful part of the Highlands, to see for themselves why it is such a must-visit destination.

“In Scotland’s Year of Stories, it is great to see Visit Inverness Loch Ness offering people around the globe the chance to catch sight of Nessie – the subject of so many myths, tales and stories over the years.”

Live feeds will be available to watch from the VILN organisation’s website.
