Barnaby Bear and Becky take a horse ride in the Scottish countryside, passing Loch Ness on the way. Barnaby doesn’t enjoy the horse ride as he finds it uncomfortable. He wants to return to Loch Ness, to look for Nessie, the Loch Ness monster.
Explain to the children that Loch is a Scottish word for lake. Children could write an information leaflet about the activities available in and around the Loch. Tell them of the myth or legend about the Loch Ness Monster. Ask them to draw or paint what they think the monster may look like.
