Roth and Ramberg meet Rod Michie


It’s September and it’s time to turn the page yet again. If you have one of the Roth and Ramberg calendars then you should now be staring at Rod Michie. If you want a calendar, send us an email or go online and you can see the calendar and the behind-the-scenes stories.

Our good friend Willie the Rat suggested we head over to Inverness to meet his friend Rod. Rod has been a captain of various boats for over 30 years.

He has been back and forth across the Loch Ness many, many times, perhaps even the most of anyone in the area. Has he seen a monster…. well, no. He does however keep the mystery alive by telling us a story about how he saw something on the sonar one day. He does point out of course that sonar can have all sorts of interesting things on them and they are not necessarily a large creature.

As he says “I’d prefer to talk about the mystery rather than the monster.”, which he proceeded to do. In the end, he summed it up beautifully. People come here in search of the monster and when they don’t find it they never ask for their money back. And Rod is right, the surrounding area is beautiful and the people are tremendous. Yes, there is something mysterious about the Loch, but in the end we didn’t need to see a monster either.
