Brits could scoop £25,000 reward if they can prove Loch Ness Monster is real

A whopping £25k has been offered to anyone who can provide definitive proof of the existence of the Loch Ness Monster ahead of the opening of the new Loch Ness Centre.

Businessman and self-made millionaire Dave Fishwick offered the reward live on ITV’s This Morningon Thursday (June 8), before tweeting that he himself was heading out on a boat to try and find Nessie.

It comes as the newly imagined Loch Ness Centre in Drumnadrochit opened, on the 90th anniversary of the first sighting of Nessie.

Dave, known as 'Bank of Dave' revealed his motives on Twitter, writing: "I wanted to help the shops and businesses in Loch Ness so I put up a reward."

The new centre, which will open to the public this Saturday (June 10), will no doubt provide important background information to fledgling Nessie hunters keen to take home Dave's cash.

Juliana Delaney, Chief Executive of Continuum, said: "We are absolutely delighted that Dave shares our enthusiasm and passion around this global phenomenon.

"As we look to open our doors, guests will have the opportunity to learn about the legend, and then get to search the famous Loch themselves, armed with further knowledge.

"We wish everyone luck in their search, we know we will be watching the iconic Loch ourselves. As the Loch Ness Centre says ‘Keep Looking’."

The reopening of the Loch Ness Centre coincides with the 90th anniversary of the famous Nessie sighting at the old Drumnadrochit Hotel, when hotel manager Mrs Aldie Mackay reported seeing a 'water beast' in Loch Ness.

The new centre will take visitors through 500 million years of history, as well as the scientific research behind the global phenomenon that is the Loch Ness Monster.

During the one-hour experience, guests will become part of the quest, discovering the real stories and meeting the many real and historic characters associated with the search for the truth about Loch Ness and Nessie.
