Also referred to as The Loch Ness Monster thought to live in the depths of Loch (lake) Ness, near Inverness, Scotland, the largest fresh water lake in Great Britain (by volume). The name is from the Gaelic Niseag. Sightings date back to the year 565 when the Irish Saint Columba claimed he saw the Niseag when he saved the life of a man who was being attacked by the monster: " (He) raised his holy hand, while all the rest, brethren as well as strangers, were stupefied with terror, and invoking the name of God, formed the saving sign of the cross in the air, and commanded the ferocious monster, saying ‘ Thou shalt go no further, nor touch the man; go back with all speed.’ Then at the voice of the saint, the monster was terrified, and fled more quickly than if it had been pulled back with ropes, though it had just got so near to Lugne, as he swam, that there was not more than the length of a spear-staff between the man and the beast. Then the brethren seeing that the monster had gone back, and that their comrade Lugne returned to them in the boat safe and sound, were struck with admiration, and gave glory to God in the blessed man. And even the barbarous heathens, who were present, were forced by the greatness of this miracle, which they hadn seen, to magnify the God of the Christians." (Life of St. Columba, by Adamnan, written in the 7th century).
