Scotland is known for it's St. Andrew's Saltire, Nessie, or The Loch Ness Monster, and for it's bagpipe music. This story does take place on the shores of Loch Ness, but it's not about the famous Loch Ness Monster. This even happened before the Surgeon's Photograph was taken! During the Napoleonic wars, to be more specific, the Fourth Coalition War, Urquhart Castle was in ruins. The Black Watch, one of the British Regiments from Scotland, had planned to march upon the shores of Loch Ness and by Urquhart Castle. The march was celebrating a victory against the French Empire in the lands of Lower Saxony. The French had three spies at the march, they would place bombs at Urquhart Castle's Gates so when the Black Watch exited, the bombs would explode.

The parade was consisted of Rankers, Officers, Pipers, Drummers, Sappers, and Colour Bearers. The Sappers weren't actually needed, but they were part of the Regiment. Outside the Castle, the Rankers would fire their muskets, to commemorate the victory.

While marching out, The Black Watch Band was playing Scotland The Brave, and -- BOOM! The bombs exploded, and the plan had worked!

Many had died, the rankers, sappers, and officers in the back were harmed, but they were still alive. The ghosts of the Black Watch who died on that day, with their comrades that had survived, still march to this day around Loch Ness, on the same day every year.
