A fun cover I found in a box I was going through. Can't find much about it online.

The 1969 Loch Ness monster hunt involved two submarines, Viperfish & Pisces. Also, a Sherlock Holmes movie.

Mrs DLR & I took a boat ride on Loch Ness a few years ago. Fort Augustus is a very interesting place to visit.

No sign of 'Nessie' but the boat had little drawings on the windows so you could line up your camera and get a shot of her on/in the water. All good fun!

Inverness is a wonderful city, one of our favourite places in Scotland.

I was probably in that same boat on Loch Ness 5 years ago. Took a few shots with those black cutouts stuck to the windows.
