People have spent hundreds of years searching for the elusive Loch Ness Monster and now finally proof could finally be close after five new Nessie cams were installed around the famous loch.

The new cameras have been installed by Visit Inverness Loch Ness (VILN) has placed the five cameras at various places around the 23-mile long loch.

It'll mean Nessie fans can keep an eye on the loch 365 days a year (without having to go there) hopefully leading to even more 'sightings' of the monster.

The new cameras are located at Craigdarroch Hotel, Foyers; Drovers Lodge near Drumnadrochit; Shoreland Lodges Fort Augustus; Loch Ness Clansman Hotel; and Airanloch B&B, Lochend reports the Daily Record.

Fans can keep an eye on the live feeds to watch from VILN’s website.

Speaking about the webcams, Michael Golding, CEO at Visit Inverness Loch Ness, said: “We are delighted to be able to provide live footage of the beautiful Loch Ness every day of the year.

"For people all over the world to watch Loch Ness through the changing seasons and get a glimpse of the beautiful scenery and abundant wildlife is very special. Of course, the webcams will also give Nessie fans another way of spotting our elusive and most popular resident!”

Karl Engel from Airanloch B&B added: “We are lucky enough to get a stunning view of Loch Ness every day and we never tire of it. To have one of the webcams here, knowing that it is being watched by potentially millions of people around the world is just amazing and we hope it inspires people to come and visit Inverness and Loch Ness.”

Chris Taylor from Visit Scotland said the cameras will give people from around the world the chance to see how beautiful the loch and its surrounds are, as well as possibly spotting some local wildlife – "on or off the water".

He added: “In Scotland’s Year of Stories, it is great to see Visit Inverness Loch Ness offering people around the globe the chance to catch sight of Nessie – the subject of so many myths, tales and stories over the years.”

The team hope that as well as hunting for Nessie via the webcams, people will also be able to enjoy other local wildlife such as golden eagles, ptarmigans and red deer, as well as possibly glimpsing the Northern Lights as they light up the Highland sky over the autumn and winter.
