High end camping in Nessie's backyard = the perfect vacation

Illustration for article titled High end camping in Nessies backyard = the perfect vacation

Craving a snap of Scotland's most evasive cryptid? Why not do it in style.

The Loch Ness Glamping retreat combines high-end camping with monster-watching. You can look for Nessie while lounging inside a custom-built Armadilla eco pods. This vacation idea is so inspired, we can only wonder: Why has it taken this long for the rest of the world to start putting together monster-centric vacation packages for the cryptid curious? Bigfoot watching from a fabulous four-star tree hut, Chupacabra spa retreats in the desert, Dover Demon lighthouse adventures... We would pay big bucks for this!

I love the idea of cryptids. It taps into a lot of things that people in modern society find appealing: cryptids are mysterious (especially in a world where 1/7 of all people use Facebook to share their lives), they have supposedly survived through the eons and not gone extinct due to man's effects, and they perfectly embody the idea of living off the grid. I think a lot of people tend to project some of their own desires onto cryptids.

I would love for Nessie, Bigfoot, and the rest to be real, but I am also not going to fool myself into thinking they actually exist. We constantly find life everywhere on the planet in unusual places, but when you say "a giant sea-beast lives in this particular lake", you basically set yourself up for failure trying to prove it. That's probably why Nessie popularity fell off in the late 20th century as technology to prove things got better. Bigfoot is marginally more plausible, but at the end of the day, just can't exist outside the realm of B-movies and awful, awful TV shows. We should never stop exploring reality, but we should probably stop looking for things people made up.
