A monstrous and fabulous run. This describes without a doubt the Loch Ness Marathon. The participants of this marathon run from Fort Augustus towards the finish line in Inverness.

After that the run continues along Loch Ness, which is world famous for the rumours of its monstrous existence in this lake.
