A BATCH of food believed to have once been given to the Loch Ness Monster has been discovered by Scottish Canals.

Dubbed “Nessie food”, a container of the unusual concoction was uncovered in the depths of the old Caledonian Canal Centre during lockdown.

It’s thought that the unique foodstuff holds magical powers which come to life when submerged in Loch Ness. The legend goes that if you throw it into the loch, you may be able to spot the Loch Ness Monster herself.

However, for Nessie to appear, the myth suggests that you have to follow three simple steps. The first step is to close your eyes and count to 10, jump three times, then take a handful of the magic food and make a wish as you throw it into the loch.

It will be available until October 25, and when picking up the magical foodstuff, remember the secret password: “Nessie Nibbles”.
