Above is a view from the boat tour of Loch Ness. No need to adjust the color on your monitor, the water actually appears to be black. This is because of the peet the falls down from the mountains. Even though it looks unappealing, we were assured that the peet actually sanitizes the water and it is drinkable.
Loch Ness is about 3/4 miles wide and over 23 miles long. The average depth is 600 feet, but is at most 1000 feet deep. If emptied, all of the water from England and Wales could not fill it.
