An East Lancashire businessman and Netflix star has offered £25,000 to anyone who can find definitive proof of the existence of the Loch Ness Monster.

Burnley’s Dave Fishwick, also known as ‘Bank of Dave’, made the offer during ITV’s This Morning on Thursday, June 8, while at the opening of the newly imagined Loch Ness Centre in Drumnadrochit.

The centre will officially open its doors on Saturday, and during the live broadcast, Dave, whose Netflix biopic, Bank of Dave, has just been released in Australia and New Zealand, unexpectedly announced the prize fund.


Juliana Delaney, chief executive of Continuum, said:  “We are absolutely delighted that Dave shares our enthusiasm and passion around this global phenomenon.

“As we look to open our doors, guests will have the opportunity to learn about the legend, and then get to search the famous Loch themselves, armed with further knowledge.

“We wish everyone luck in their search, we know we will be watching the iconic Loch ourselves. As the Loch Ness Centre says ‘Keep Looking’.”

From Saturday, visitors to the Highlands and wannabe monster spotters will be able to walk through 500 million years of history, delve deeper into Scottish myths and legends, and discover the scientific research behind the global phenomena that is the Nessie legend.

Following a £1.5 million investment, Continuum Attractions has created a modern, immersive experience where guests can explore the myths and magic of the Loch and its most beloved resident.
