Loch Ness Visitor's Centre, Loch Ness, Scotland, 1998

Nessie became famous after a sighting in 1934 although the earliest recorded sighting of Nessie was in the biography of St. Columba in 565 AD. The monster apparently attacked and killed a man who was swimming in the River Ness. The best modern day usage of Nessie was by The Goodies followed by the Zygon episodes on Dr Who.
