View over Loch Ness

Loch Ness is the largest body of fresh water in Great Britain at 39 km long and 132 m deep. The loch is fed by 40 rivers and streams and flows to the sea through the Caledonian Canal and the River Ness. It is on an active strike-slip fault.

In geology, strike-slip faults are caused by horizontal compression and release their energy by rock displacement in a horizontal direction.
