An English tourist has left a scathing TripAdvisor review of Loch Ness after failing to spot its legendary "monster".

The dad named Ron was left heartbroken drove more than 400 miles with his family in search of the illusive Nessie, the Sun reports.

He told of his "bitter disappointment" after spending hours in search of the serpent-like beast in his one star review, which has left online readers in hysterics.

“What a disappointment," he wrote.

“We traveled 400 miles from Grimsby to see the Loch Ness Monster and it didn't show up.

“Don't go if you are wanting to see it because it you will end up bitterly disappointed like we were.

“Wife and two kids waited around for hours, viewpoints were crowded and dirty and the weather was terrible, one moment sunshine the next it was hard to keep up.

“I thought the whole experience was horrendous, I wish I hadn't bothered.

“It's just a tourist trap and not sure why they would advertise the Loch Ness Monster when it's all a lie.

“There's much better places in Scotland, won't be coming back.”

A screenshot of the review was posted online with the caption “maybe they were just unlucky”.

Nicki Parrott replied: “It doesn’t like the midges, so it swam south”.

Garry Park added: “Plenty of monsters in Grimsby. Why travel to see one?”

Ironically, reports claim Nessie was spotted for the second time in 11 days earlier this month.

A tourist claimed to have seen the creature rise two feet from the water giving the visitor the fright of his life.

Experts have never been able to prove Nessie is real despite numerous "sightings" over the years.

Meanwhile, a study by researchers in the Archives of Natural History journal claims the beast's neck is just a whale penis.

The study speculated that many accounts of large mysterious sea creatures with a "serpent-like tail" were actually a large baleen whale and its "snake-like penis".

They added that other accounts could be attributed to the male members of certain whale species, which can be at least 1.8 metres long and are sometimes spotted rising from the water during mating.
