When we visited Dumnadrochit in 2000, my wife and I discovered that the Monster Centre & Exhibition, despite having a plesiosaur-like statue outside, actually presented displays and explanations that debunked the monster story. It was a nice day for monster-hunting--overcast, with the hills on either side of the loch vanishing in the low clouds, and a thin drizzle falling into the choppy gray water--and looking at the odd wave formations caused, I suppose, by the deep water and the narrow banks, we understood how easy it would be to suppose something big was swimming nearby.

By the way, the water straight out of the loch tastes peaty. It's supposed to be very pure, free of microorganisms, and all I'll say is that we survived with no ill effects after swigging some of it.
