Spoiler alert: he didn't find anything.
Charlie Sheen – actor, viral video sensation and… monster hunter? Sheen jetted off to Scotland this week, not just in need of some R&R, but also in pursuit of Nessie, apparently. The actor loaded up pals Todd Zelie and Brian Peck on his private jet and flew everyone off to Nessie’s home. Once there, the trio reportedly hired a boat and took it out to hunt for the mysterious prehistoric beast. As is usually the case with these things, they came up empty-handed, but the bottle of scotch they took along on the lake probably made for ample entertainment.
The trip might have been fun...
After the unsuccessful hunt, Sheen and co. stayed at the historic Aldourie Castle, before leaving the very next day. Hopefully it was the disappointment of an unsuccessful Nessie hunt and not a bad vacation experience that scared them. According to The Sun, the castle’s general manager, Lavinia Turner praised Charlie and his friends on being model guests and hopes to welcome them back sometime.
Unfortunately, there was no Nessie in sight.
She said: “All I can say is that Mr Sheen and his party were perfect guests and thoroughly enjoyed their trip to Scotland and Loch Ness. They had a wonderful and relaxing time, but unfortunately didn’t see any sign of Nessie although I’m sure they’ll be back in the future to try again.” Hopefully they will. In the mean time, Nessie lives to fascinate tourists another day.
Surprisingly, the accomodation staff loved the unpredictable actor.
