The infamous ‘Loch Ness Monster’ photograph, taken on April 19, 1934, and widely believed to be a hoax. Sorry (Picture: Getty)
It’s long been established that unicorns are mythical animals.
But everybody knows that the Loch Ness Monster is real.
So it is with that knowledge that a campaign has been launched to have Nessie recognised as the national animal of Scotland.
Inverness cruise company Loch Ness by Jacobite wants to replace the unicorn, a legacy from William I’s decision to use the mythical creature on his coat of arms.
The first sighting of the Loch Ness Monster dates back to 565AD and the question of whether or not she exists is said to be worth millions each year to Scottish tourism.
