Do you believe in the Loch Ness Monster? People from around the world travel to the famous lake in Scotland every year to try to catch a glimpse of legendary creature dubbed Nessie. Now, you can join the hunt without even leaving your living room. Google is bringing the search to you with a fun, interactive Google Street View tour of Loch Ness.

On this date back in 1934, a London doctor named Robert Kenneth Wilson captured a fuzzy photo that many claim shows the Loch Ness Monster's head and neck. Since then, the photo has become famous all over the world. The "Physician's Photo" could be actual proof of the mythical monster's existence or perhaps just an elaborate hoax. Either way, it has sparked decades of speculation and interest among people from across the globe.

To celebrate the historic photo, Google created an entire page dedicated to viewing Loch Ness. The company teamed up with the Catlin Seaview Survey to capture tons of images, so you can virtually travel the entire lake and keep your eyes open for any Nessie sightings.

Ready to start hunting for the Loch Ness Monster? You can also take a look at the view of Urquhart Castle and surrounding waters below. You can also navigate to Google's Loch Ness page to select other areas of the lake to look at.

It works just like the normal Street View Function in Google Maps. Just click and drag with your mouse or use the onscreen arrows to move about the lake. There are even some underwater images you can look at.

This is a really cool website, even if you're a skeptic. If you don't want to search for Nessie, just enjoy the beautiful Scottish Highlands and views of the lake.
