Surrounded by hills,
I rest on an isle
Known for its castles
And "baggy" music style

I can hide a monster
At least some think
But for what it's worth
I'm one of nature's sinks

What am I?


Answer

Loch Ness in Scotland

Surrounded by hills - The Loch is in a fjord surrounded by wetland hills.

I rest on an isle

I can hide a monster
At least some think that there is a monster lives in Loch Ness, but it isn't verifiable.

But for what it's worth
