Explore Loch Ness with Google Maps

Virtual Tours of Loch Ness

This great video from the people at Google Maps explains their motivation in mapping Loch Ness for the internet audience, as well as giving you a little taster of what you can expect when you explore the area online with their amazing over and underwater tours of Loch Ness.

Using Google Maps to Hunt for Nessie

According to the people from Google Maps, there are more searches for Loch Ness than there are for any other UK visitor destination, including Buckingham Palace. Which is why they decided it was time to give Google map users a unique opportunity to explore the area online.

Working in partnership with a team from Catlin Seaview Survey, Google Maps put together an exciting 360 degree image library, offering internet users the chance to discover the area and even search beneath the surface of the loch for our magical mythical monster!

While we believe that the best way to search for Nessie is with a Loch Ness holiday, we also understand that some of you might be impatient to start exploring. And the recent Loch Ness map update on Google is a great way to whet your appetite for a little bit of Highland adventure.

So, head over to Loch Ness on Google Maps and take a look around. Oh, and don’t miss the special Street View icon in the bottom left of the screen, which has turned from its normal yellow self into a familiar Highland form for this virtual tour of Loch Ness!
