Cameron Files - Secret at Loch Ness
By Catalina Navarro
Monday, - December 17th
The game starts out with a scene in Lord Mac Farley's Manor. Once
inside the sitting room you (as Cameron) clicks once and you trigger a
scene with Lady Mac Farley. After saying a bit she faints and drops a
necklace in the sofa. Then the Indian butler takes the Lady and tells
Cameron (you) that his room is upstairs. So go upstairs, either
through the main hallway or the double doors beside the sofa.
If you go through the double doors take a left to the end of that
hallway and then a right to the end of that hallway, then take a left
and up the stairs. Go straight to the end of that hall and then right
and to your left to the first pair of doors right across.
Enter Cameron's room, go to the bed and pick up your sachel. Now go to
the desk and click on the envelope from Mr. Mac Grab... Read it. Now read
your notebook, you have to retrieve whatever Lady Mac Farley dropped.
Leave the room, and go back to the sitting room. Go to the sofa and
find the necklace under the pillow, open it and take the pills and the
small key. Now walk to the desk and click on the newspaper, read about
the stolen Celtic book, now click on the book in front of the desk and
see the book that it is about "Electricity and Magnetism".
Now walk out the room through the doors that are by the sofa. Turn left
and go to the first hall all the way down to the white door. Go in, it
is the kitchen. Go to the sink and click on the towel and take it, turn
around and go to the table beside the dumbwaiter, open the drawer and
take the candles and matches. Turn around and go to the bells, just
take a look.
Now go to the box next to the door and take the first key on your
right, which is Lord Mac Farley's room key. At that moment a bell rings
and if you go to the bells you will see that it is Lady Mac Farley's
Go to the dumbwaiter and pull the handle, watch it go up to a room.
Turn right and go to the stairs at the far end of the room. Go up. Exit
the stairs and go to the white door opposite yours. It is the laundry
room, go to the dumbwaiter to your right and take the cup. Exit the
room taking a right; now go all the way down to the double doors across
the hall. Using your passkey, enter Lord Mac Farley's room. Take a left
to the first bookcase and open it taking the folded piece of paper, it
is a Memorandum. The Memorandum explains the use of a telegraph device.
Turn right and go to the desk; open the drawer and read about Mac Grab
Distillery. Move your cursor to the left and you will be prompted to
the lower left hand side of the desk, where there are 3 fingerprints.
Using the copper oxide powder, ink and blank paper: lift the
fingerprints. Look around and then walk out.
Go to your right to the next double doors, it is Lady Mac Farley's
room. Go to your right to her bedside. Taking the pills and the cup
give them to her, hear what she says.
Turn around and go to the chest of drawers by the door and take the
chloroform. Now go to the bathroom and then to the vanity. Using the
small key found in the necklace open the box and take the attic key.
Go to the table by the white door and take the picture that is in
there. Look at it. Look around and walk out.
Go to the left past Lord Mac Farley's room to the end of the hall, turn
left and up the stairs. Look around at everything until you come to the
end of the corridor.
Using the attic key go in. This triggers a scene and shuts you in the
Click once forward and then shift a little left until you find the
magnifying glass. Click on it and you see the candlestick. Using your
candles and matches get some light in the room.
Go to the far back wall, where there is a candle on a table. Open the
box and find an album. Take Lord Mac Farley's photo. Now turn left and
go to the door you can't open.
Take a left to the cabinet and open the door and take the folded paper,
it is a map.
Turn around and go to the two boxes piled on top of each other. Look
inside and take the crowbar.
Now go to the round room in the back. Look at Cameron's notebook
(yours). Click on the other door, and that triggers a scene. Now go to
the window that is bordered up.
Using the crowbar, take the planks off. Now look through the window. It
is the Loch Ness Monster!!! Quick take a picture! Of course, with the
Now go to the other door, using the crowbar open the door, walk down
the hall to the trapdoor. Open it and climb down. That triggers a scene
with a ghost (a banshee).
Go to the sitting room as Cameron suggests. Walk out take a right, all
the way down then another right, then a left to the other side of the
hall and then a left to the stairs. Walk down the stairs. You can now
enter the room on your left. The only thing there is a book of Moira's
paintings about flowers, leaf through it and find the Phalaenopsis.
Look familiar? Look at the picture you (Cameron took from Lady Mac
Farley's room). It is at the greenhouse. How strange the Edelweiss has
a 666 there? Wonder why?
Exit the room and take a left to the end of the hall, then a right to
the end of that hall, then an other left to the last double doors on
your right. Enter the room.
It is the sitting room. Now go to the table with the bottle and some
glasses. Using the flask of Bourbon pour it into one of the glasses.
The Cameron crystal comes out. Take it and turn around, go to the
double doors next to the armor. Exit the room and go straight across to
the double doors in front.
Open the doors, looks like a reception room. Go straight across to the
little bar. Open the doors and take the mead. Look familiar? Look at
the picture from Lady Mac Farley's room. Turn around and go to the far
back of the room, past the chimney to the bookcase.
Using your (Cameron's) knife open the case and then the box, take the
scroll. Read it, it's the "Auld Alliance Treaty". Isn't it Celtic? Read
your notebook. It says to go and look for the Celtic cross. Ready to
venture out? Walk out the room and go to the main entrance.
Once outside go straight. When you get to the Cross, look at the
picture. Put the bottle of mead where it goes. Turn around and go to
the greenhouse to your left or use the map.
Go inside and on your left is the flower. Using your knife take it.
Either by walking or using your map go to the Cross, again. Put the
flower, where it goes. This triggers a scene with the banshee.
So you have to find the 3 crystals of Sirdach. That is the Mac Farley's
Crystal, Mac Grab's and the Cameron Crystal.
Tuesday- December 18th
Now you are automatically taken to your room. Read your notebook. Exit
the room and go to Lord Mac Farley's office. The one downstairs.
Go towards Lord Mac Farley's room and take a right to the end of the
hall, as you pass the double doors towards the stairs you hear talking,
but you can't go in. Oh well, go down the stairs. Enter the first
double doors. It is Lord Mac Farley's office.
When you enter the phonograph is playing. Go to it and turn it off. You
hear talking go to the spiral staircase in the far right of the room.
Go up, when you get to the end look around the ceiling for a trapdoor.
When you find it, it triggers a scene.
Listen to the conversation between Mac Grab and Moira; they are talking
about the crystals. Go back down.
Go to the other end of the room, where there is a niche there is a
carving that you can't work. Turn around and exit the room.
Take a left, then a right and then a left to the first double doors on
your right. Open the doors and you enter the foyer.
Notice the briefcase on the bench near the right staircase. Open it and
take the signet ring and the letter. This triggers a scene with Mr. Mac
Grab. He invites you (Cameron) to his distillery at eight; but Cameron
decides no way and wants to go earlier.
So go outside and using your map go to the Stone Bridge. Stop before
crossing; go to your right to a dock. Take the oars and climb into the
boat. Automatically Cameron rows to the distillery. When you get there
you see a man with a shotgun go inside a building. Go to the door and
The man answers the door and says it is closed. Do it twice. Save your
game! Now go left and then left again to a group of barrels, pick up
Turn left and go to the dock, now turn right and right again and go to
the doors with a chain around it. Using the pliers cut the chain. Save
your game! Go in and walk to the other door, be careful with the
bottles on the floor. Open the other door, and go in. Now go to the
office on your right. Once inside use the chloroform and the rag to
knock out the man.
Now turn right and see the cane. Take it and open the handle take the
chest key and then the cane. On the back of the chair you see a case
open it and take the stolen book. The book of Kelia. Exit the room,
then go out the other door you came in, and then the other door. Now
you are looking for the cellar.
Go outside and go to the water wheel using the cane, stop the wheel. Go
back into the room and go straight to the end of the waterway. See the
trapdoor. Climb down. You come to a room where you see a chair. It
looks like an electric chair.
Click on the box underneath the chair and open it, Take the amber rings
and the mirror rings. Now move the chair. Using the signet ring open
the door. Go in.
Walk down the corridor until you come to a big cave. There you have
three entrances: one with a bird on the top, a cross and a coat of
arms. Go down the one with a bird on it.
When you come to the end you find a stone wheel and a boulder with
writings like the one in the Book of Kelia. Turn around and walk out.
Take the next tunnel, the one with the cross. Go to the end and find a
closed door, turn around and exit. Take the next tunnel. The one with
the coat of arms.
Go down to the end and you come to a gate. Go through it and you end up
at the tackle room in the manor. Turn to your left and go to the chest,
open it and see a diver's boots and helmet and in the locker there is a
suit. You can't do anything just know that they are there.
Using the map go to the castle, once inside go to Lord Mac Farley's
office. Go to the niche and using the cane open the secret office. Once
inside go to your left to the bookcase, click on the bottom part of the
case and you find a safe with Roman numerals. Remember the Celtic
Treaty? (MCCXCV). Take the piece of paper. Look at the piece a paper
and you find a drawing of an armchair and a hand. Well it looks like a
Now go up the stairs past the armchair and to the door at the top of
the stairs. Go in, this is Lord Mac Farley's laboratory. Look around.
When you come to the part of the counter where there are some drawings
and drawing utensils and some radio like devices, click behind them and
find the glove and a window handle; take both.
Walk out and on your way down notice the first window. It doesn't have
a handle. Go to the armchair. Follow the numbers that are on the
drawing. Before you put your hand in the hole. SAVE YOUR GAME! Put on
the glove. Now take the Mac Farley Crystal. Once you leave this scene
it triggers another scene. You see the maid shutting the door so that
you are locked in. At that moment a timer appears, so go directly to
the window without a handle, using the handle you climb out, but
somebody cuts the rope and you fall into the moat. If you did it within
the time allotted you are saved, if not... I hope you saved your game!
This triggers a scene where Moira tells you (Cameron) have to go to the
laboratory and send a telegraph to Scotland Yard. So that they can
Wednesday- December 19th
You are once again in your room. Look at your notebook. Exit the room
and go to the secret office. Go to the portrait of Lord Mac Farley;
take notice. Turn around and go to the desk, from the drawer take the
observatory key and the Indian dagger. Walk to the laboratory and using
the observatory key open the door to the locked door. Go up.
Turn right and go to the locker open it and take the Raven statuette
and the book. Read the book and find out about the holograms made with
the Sirdach crystals. Now turn around and go to the machine.
Click on it and turn it on. Remember the memorandum? The numbers are:
Telegraph device code: 75436
Id number: 65
First enter the telegraph code and a green lights comes on then enter
the id number and a red light comes on. Next it prompts you to put the
fingerprints, Loch Ness picture and Moira's code on the silver plate.
After you do it you here a bell ring. Click on the copper plate and you
receive a message, take it and now read Scotland Yard's answer. Read
While you are waiting for the answer go downstairs and go to the
apparatus that looks like the one in the drawings. Using the amber
rings, then the mirror rings, the Raven statuette and Mac Farley's
crystal a scene is triggered. And you can see writing on the statuette,
"If you seize the Celtic triskel, only the raven will know how to open
the path". Once you take the raven and the crystal you hear a bell
ring. So go back upstairs.
Click on the copper plate. Take three documents from the plate, and
then read them:
1. Mac Farley's message- Key to Chapel is behind Mac Farley's
2. Scotland Yard's answer- fingerprints are Mac Grab's.
3. Loch Ness photograph- it is a submarine.
Read notebook. So now we go to the Chapel. Go down to the office and
look behind Mac Farley's portrait. Using the Indian dagger open the box
and take the Chapel key and the poem. Read poem. Go to the front of the
Manor and using the map, go to the Chapel. Try to open the door with
the Chapel key. Oops, it breaks, which triggers a scene with the
Banshee. Who says the key is in the book of Kelia. Now you need a
cord. Using your map go to the Stone Bridge and then to the dock.
Using the pliers take the rope and the grapnel from the chest. Go back
to the chapel using the map.
Once there go to the right side of the building and using the grapnel
and rope climb up. Once on top a dial appears.
So using the Book of Kelia, find the corresponding symbols to the word
"Sirdach". The dial moves and you climb down.
Once inside, turn around and go to your right. Read the stone
inscription "Risen form ancient times, king, queen and knight will
cross glances and discover the path of the inexpressible power". Go to
the first statue and click on it three times, go to the next statue on
the right and click on it three times. You should end up at the biggest
statue, where you climb down. Click that statue twice.
A floor door opens, walk down the stairs, you come to a crypt. Look
around. There is a pedestal with a stone figure on it; it is the
triskel. Take it, now put the raven statuette on the pedestal. The trap
door closes but another door opens.
Go to the now open door. Look familiar? It is the cave, the tunnel with
the cross on it. Take the tunnel with the coat of arms and exit at the
tackle room. Using the map go to Menhir.
There you see another raven. Oh well, you can't do anything right now.
Go back to the manor.
As you enter you are encountered with the Indian Butler. You ask him
about Lord Mac Farley and Mr. Mac Grab. You find out that they once
worked together, but had a big disagreement. He tells you that
something strange is happening on the lake.
Thursday - December 20th
The scene starts out in your room. Read your notebook. So start your
search for somebody in the castle. Actually you find no one. But when
you enter the sitting room walk to the pool stick rack and click on the
left hand window. There you trigger a scene where you see the monster
again. So you are prompted to go outside.
Using your map go to Menhir, go to the boulder that is by the stone
structure, click on it and you discover that it crumbles in your hand.
Wonder what happened there? Now go to the tackle room. Now you can take
the diving equipment, but first you are suggested to find something to
carry them in. So using your map go to the greenhouse, there, on the
left side of the greenhouse you see a wheel barrel. Click on it and a
scene is triggered and you end back at the tackle room. Put the things
inside the wheel barrel. Turn around and go to the air pump (the box
with an iron wheel on it). You need someone to help you carry it. Go
back to the greenhouse. Once there you can see that Mr. Mohr is inside.
Go in and click on him. Automatically, both of you walk out toward the
lake. Now you are at the lake all geared up. Once in you go in you
can't come back out until you finish underwater.
This path worked for me. From where you entered go forward one click,
slight move to the right (just enough for the arrow to appear) click
once; move right to just before the boat frame, click once; move right,
1 click; move left, 1 click; move right, 1 click; move left, 1 click;

in the background you see a pair of large doors. Save game!
Go to the doors and using the broken bottle click on the door. A
carving of the raven appears. Turn around and as you click forward once
a timer appears, because your air is running out. Move right, click
once; move left, 1 click; move right, 1 click; move left, 1 click; move

When you climb out you find Mr. Mohr laying on the ground and you hear
a scream coming from the manor. Go to the manor and then to Lord Mac
Farley office, once inside you see the secret office door open, go
there and when you walk inside, Lady Mac Farley appears and tells you
that Mac Grab took Moira. You should go to the distillery and that
there is a gun in the drawer in her nightstand. Go to her room and take
the gun, then go to the distillery.
Go to the side entrance the one you took the first time you went there.
Before you enter, to your right there are some pails in a wheel barrel
and to the right there is a sack of sawdust, take it. Now go in. Go
straight to the other door where the office is. Go in. Save your game!
Exit the room through the main entrance. When you exit the maid hits
and you are out. When you come to you are in the room with the electric
chair. Go to the far wall and take the leather strap. Turn right and go
to the far wall. Look up and using the leather strap on the window
bars. Turn around and go to the opposite wall to the machine like
device. Using the leather strap again turn on the machine. Turn around
and climb out the window. Save game! Once outside look down at the
ground, you will see a bag. Once you pick it up, the maid will come out
of the main entrance with a gun, a timer appears, when you get control
for the cursor, aim it at the bag that is hanging over the maid's head.
Walk to her and open her bag taking Mr. Mac Grab's notebook. This
triggers a scene with the banshee.
Friday - December 21 st
Once again you start out at your room. Read your notes and Mac Grab's
notebook. So go to the tackle room and then the passageways to the
tunnel that has a raven on it. Click on the wheel, remember what the
banshee said. December 21 shortest day and Alban Arduous. In Mac Grab's
book it says Capricorn. Click on the outer wheel until the N appears
under the spotlight. Turn the inner wheel until the N appears between
the ??and ???Turn around and go to the boulder with the symbol of the
triskel on it. Enter and go up the stairs.
You arrive at a ship like building. Exit to the hall, Turn right and
walk down until you get to the first opening on your right, go in and
look down. There is a door. Take note. Turn around and exit the room on
the right side. When you exit you see a porthole in front of you, click
on it and hear Mac Grab's plan. When it is over a timer appears. Turn
right and click once.
Once you gain control of the cursor, keep going right to the next
opening, there you find a staircase leading up, when you get to top you
find a door you can't open. Take note. Exit to your right and click on
the porthole you see Lord Mac Farley. Keep going right, in the next
opening are some stairs leading down. That is where you entered. Exit
to your right and you come to the main lobby. The central column has a
three-circle figure on it. Turn around and go into the office. Go to
the machine on the wall behind the desk and switch it off. Now turn
around and click on the desk, open the drawer and take the platinum key
and the metallic pliers. On top of the desk is the triskel chest. Take
it. Exit the room and go to the column. Click on the silver circle and
then on the red circle. This opens two doors.
Go to the room that seems like a lab. When you enter go to your left
and to the first set of cabinets. Open the right side; take the nitro
acid, sulfuric acid and the glycerin. Go to the shelves where there are
some books, take the orange book, the one about explosives. Open it and
read about making dynamite. Exit the room and go into the one where
Lord Mac Farley is.
Save your game! Go to the machine that is beside Lord Mac Farley;
switch off the middle switch, then the one on the left and finally the
one on the right. Go to the far right of the table and take the green
bottle. Click it on Lord Mac Farley.
He comes to, and you tell him whom you are. He tells you that he is
going to the laboratory at the manor to prepare the laser. You will go
and look for Moira, try to blow up the submarine and get the triskel.
When you try to exit the room you hear a scream and a timer appears.
Click once then turn left click again, go right and click until you
come to the opening that has a door on the bottom. Once you arrive
click on the dial. Remember Mac Grab's notes the number for the
submarine room: 421.
Now climb down and turn left, go in. You see the submarine in front of
you and to the right a cage. Walk to your left to a pile of pails on
the floor click on them and take the starry key. Save your game! Now go
to the cage and see that it is Moira. Turn right to the far wall click
on the controls and put the starry key on the key pole. Move your
cursor not immediately to your right, but to the lower right hand side.
This triggers the cage moving it to the side and now go to the cage and
using the pair of pliers set her free. She sort of thanks you, and you
tell her to go to the manor where her father is. From there you go back
to the lab where you got the materials for the explosive. Go to your
left and click on the beakers.
Remember the recipe for dynamite, Ok. Click on the middle beaker and
first, save your game! Take the nitro acid and put four amounts,
because you are carrying quantities of 30 ml and the recipe asks for
120. Now take the sulfuric acid and you are carrying quantities of 20
ml and the recipe asks for 80 ml. Now pour in the glycerin. Take that
beaker and pour it in to the other beaker on your left. Now get the
sawdust and put it in the green bottle on your right. Now take the
pipette and get the explosive from the beaker, now take the pipette to
the green bottle and put it in there. Take the bottle. Go back to the
Once on the submarine turn left and go to the end, put to bomb on the
left propeller. Exit the room and go to the opening with the staircase
leading up. Go to the number dial. Remember Mac Grab's notebook, the
number for the triskel room: 532.
Go in and go to the little door that is on the column. Using the
platinum key open the door. Take out the triskel chest and place to the
right of the triskel. Using the metallic pliers take the triskel and
place it in the box.
Now exit the room and go to the opening where you saw the stairs
leading down. Go down and exit the dock. Go to the manor and then to
Lord Mac Farley's laboratory. Once you are up there you are met with
Moira. She gives you the honors. Click on the laser, this triggers a
scene where Mac Grab is driving the submarine, after that a timer
appears and a target as well, aim it at the submarine. Once it
explodes, the scene changes and Moira is thanking you, but you still
have something to do. Go to the cross and place the triskel chest on
the platform near the mead. Enjoy the closing scene.
