Charlie Sheen indulged his inner explorer when he headed to Scotland last week to hunt for the mythical Loch Ness Monster.

The former “Two and a Half Men” star traveled to Loch Ness in the Scottish Highlands last week (beg01Jul) with a group of friends on a mission to find the beast, nicknamed Nessie.

The actor stayed at Aldourie Castle on the shores of the loch during his trip, but failed to catch a glimpse of the fabled creature during his stay, however, he did have his picture taken with a wooden sculpture of Nessie.

Sheen took a private jet home on Saturday and he climbed on board the plane to the sounds of a former Scots Guard playing traditional Scottish tunes on the bagpipes.
