The true nature and appearance of the Beathach Mòr Loch Odha, is shrouded in mystery. Some say it looks like a giant horse, while others describe a colossal eel. What is known for sure is that the Great Beast is a large and powerful creature. It can be heard in the dead of winter breaking the ice.
It has been a long time since the Great Beast was last seen. Its existence is almost forgotten on the shores of Loch Awe, and a Ford resident interviewed by Fleming in 2001 had nothing to say about it ".
