Just love this narrator's voice -- deep, clear, resonant!

why is a Loch Ness monster incorrect?

because you are suppose to type what you hear - Gaelic! Been there, done that.

Are you asking why "a" loch ness monster is in correct? If so, presumably there is only one Nessie- so it would be "the".

legend has it that there is only one Loch Ness Monster, Nessie.

Thank you for this one - it made my day!

In Scotland we always talk about ¨Nessie¨, very rarely ¨The Loch Ness Monster¨, so Nessie should be accepted as a correct answer

"Nessie" is not Gaelic, "Niseag" is. The answer needs to be Gaelic.

The answer that was wanted from me was to be in English, so why is Nessie not acceptable?

"Nessie" is accepted here :)
