We stopped off at Loch Ness to try and see if we could find the Loch Ness Monster! Originally a sceptic of the whole idea, after hearing all the stories, I think Nessie might just be hiding away in there somewhere!


So, in a desperate attempt to find Nessie, I decided to go for a swim in Loch Ness! Ah, also, the loch (scottish lake) is pretty damn cold. About 3 degrees celcius! So I stripped down, and jumped in!

It was the coldest I’ve ever been in my life! The water was icy cold, and it felt as if there were thousands of tiny needles poking me in the chest! I didn’t care if I saw Nessie or not – I was getting out!

I felt really odd after that. It was difficult to walk because my feet had gone numb, and my nipples had gone so hard I could probably crack a cashew nut on them!
Blody Cold!

Whilst I recovered from the first stage of hypothermia, we travelled to the site of the battle of Culloden, where the whole Scottish nation was nearly eliminated.

And that just about finished finished my final lot of holidays for the year! I’ll be home in 2 weeks – counting down!
