Google Maps Suggests Riding the Loch Ness Monster Instead of a Bus

By Andrew Liszewski on at

The next time you find yourself travelling around the Scottish Highlands, instead of grabbing a bus or other sensible form of public transportation, Google Maps suggests taking a ride on the mythical Loch Ness monster.

It’s an amusing Easter egg, but unfortunately not actually a real option, we are afraid to say. Which is sad, because getting from Augustus to Urquhart Castle on a bus takes 33 minutes while hopping aboard Nessie reduces your travel time to just 22 minutes – a real-time saving of 30 per cent; imagine the time you could save over a period of a year? That giant sea creature could give the local transport authority some real competition. [Google Maps via Huffington Post]
