New webcams located along the shores of Loch Ness mean that Nessie hunters can now keep an eye out for Nessie 365 days of the year, wherever they are.  

Cameras are now located at five locations around the famous loch, including the Craigdarroch Hotel in Foyers and Drovers Lodge near Drumnadrochit.

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!” 

Tourism providers are also hoping the webcams will inspire people to visit the area for other reasons, too.  Chris Taylor, VisitScotland Regional Leadership Director, said: “By having the opportunity to see Loch Ness from so many different viewpoints, more potential visitors will be inspired to travel to this beautiful part of the Highlands.”

Tennessee Human Trafficking Hotline

Human Trafficking is modern-day slavery, plain and simple. It happens here. And it has to stop.

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation is committed to understanding and fighting Human Trafficking. Our state has consistently been ranked among the best in the nation for its approach to this crime, as a growing number of advocates — from law enforcement to nonprofits to government agencies — have stepped up to play a part in the solution.

Consider the facts:

  • In the United States, on average, every two minutes, a child is bought or sold for sex.
  • The average age of a child sold for sex is 13 years old.
  • Human Trafficking is the second-fastest growing criminal industry, just behind Drug Trafficking.

In 2014, the TBI launched a public awareness campaign to inform the state about Human Trafficking, and more importantly, what can be done about it. Online, you’ll find more information, videos, warning signs, and a list of nonprofits committed to the fight in need of your support. Together, we believe we can put and to this kind of crime.

Suspect someone may be a victim of human trafficking? Call the Tennessee Human Trafficking Hotline at 1-855-55-TNHTH.

Six Strategies for Volatile Markets

The markets have become volatile again, prompted by fears of global growth slowing down, brought on by a slide in Chinese stocks after China’s devaluation of its currency.
