'A Good Story' the Loch Ness Monster at the monastery, Fort Augustus

This postcard, entitled 'A Good Story,' shows a painted depiction of a group of monks involved in a jovial conversation with the Loch Ness Monster, overlooking the monastery at Fort Augustus, at the southern extent of Loch Ness. It appears that the Loch Ness Monster is in the middle of recounting a story, with the monks listening in good humour.

The monks exaggerated expressions may be in reference to their likely incredulous disbelief to the existence of a Loch Ness monster.

The abbey at Fort Augustus used to run a small publishing company from the printing press in its basement, and it is possible that this postcard was published by the monks themselves.
