    Book details

There is no scientific evidence whatsoever for the existence of the Loch Ness Monster.
That is the conclusion reached by Ronald Binns in his book, The Loch Ness Mystery: Solved. "The real mystery of the monster," writes Binns, "is why it should periodically seize the wider public imagination and continue to be given credence, even when much of the evidence can be shown to be suspect."
Loch Ness, the most famous stretch of water in the British Isles, is a strange and compelling place. Its dark waters are shadowed by mountains, it shores craggy and inhospitable. Loch Ness provides a gloomy, romantic setting for what has come to be known as the greatest riddle of modern natural history. Since 1933, there have been hundreds of sightings of the alleged monster.
This is the definitive account of the alleged monster and its curious environment. Ronald Binns takes a new look at the enigma by investigating the original sightings of the beast and scrutinizing the eyewitness evidence for its existence. The book explains precisely what the monster is, and publishes for the first time many remarkable photographs. These pictures are shown alongside the "classic" pictures of the monster. Binns' pursuit and analysis of the evidence and his convincing solution of this great mystery are as enthralling as a detective story.

Review Text

  • By Andrew G. Doe on 10 April 2015

    As a sensible, sober and above all unbiased survey of all the "evidence", and an equally calm presentation of what really is behind the Monster sightings, this is a splendid book. Unless you're a devoted believer, in which case, you'll hate it. :-)

    I wrote a review on this book when it came out in 1983. Even then, some other Loch Ness Monster sceptics were calling it "prematurely titled" with the reference to the word "solved". Binns uses a combination of ad hominems, exaggerations, omissions and suspect thinking to browbeat the reader into thinking thousands of witnesses to something strange in Loch Ness can indeed all be wrong. His handling of the Mackay case is a disgrace but a classic in manipulating the source material to get the result you want.Likewise, his treatment of Alex Campbell, a major part of the Loch Ness mystery, would have lead to lawsuits if directed at other people. Fortunately for Binns, he timed the publication of his book to only a few weeks after Campbell's death.What can I say? It is indeed prematurely titled.His explanations for how the multitude of eyewitnesses are all incompetent at seeing what they saw differs little from what Maurice Burton said 22 years before in his book "The Elusive Monster". In other words, the book brings nothing new to the table but rather leaves a bad taste in the mouth.
