Exploring Myths and Folklore from around the world

8th Feb 2024

As we embrace the enchanting allure of the Highlands, we find ourselves at the crossroads of ancient traditions and modern marvels. And what better time to embark on this mystical journey than during the Year of the Dragon, a celebration of magic and custom that transcends borders and spans centuries?

The Year of the Dragon

In Chinese culture, the Dragon is revered as a symbol of power, strength, and good fortune. As we welcome the Year of the Dragon, we are reminded of the universal appeal of mythical creatures and the timeless tales that captivate our imagination.

At The Loch Ness Centre, we believe that the spirit of the Dragon resonates deeply with the rugged landscapes and untamed beauty of Loch Ness. Just as the Dragon soars across the celestial realms, we envision Nessie, the legendary resident of Loch Ness, as a kindred spirit roaming the mist-shrouded waters in search of adventure.

Exploring Scottish Myths and Folklore

Join us during Spring Festival and delve into the rich tapestry of Scottish myths and folklore, where ancient legends intertwine with the natural wonders of the Highlands. Here, tales of kelpies, selkies, and fairy folk dance on the breeze, whispering secrets of bygone eras and unseen worlds.

At The Loch Ness Centre, we celebrate the enduring legacy of Scottish folklore, paying homage to the heroes, monsters, and magical beings that populate our collective imagination.

Embracing the Spirit of Adventure

As we navigate the murky depths of Loch Ness, let us channel the courage and curiosity of the explorers, scientists and researchers who came before us. Here lies the promise of discovery, the thrill of the unknown, and the possibility of encountering something truly extraordinary.

So, whether you’re a seasoned mythologist or a curious traveler seeking adventure, we invite you to join us at The Loch Ness Centre, where the past meets the present and the fantastic becomes reality. Let us take you on a  journey of discovery to unlock the mystery of the loch.

As we bid farewell to the old year and welcome the new, may the Year of the Dragon inspire us to embrace the magic that surrounds us and the mysteries that lie just beyond the horizon. And who knows? Perhaps, amidst the shadows of Loch Ness, we may catch a glimpse of Nessie herself, a reminder that some legends are too extraordinary to be confined to the realm of myth.

Happy Exploring, Adventurers!
