RECENT SIGHTINGS LOG

Since this blog began about a year ago, two things were uppermost. The first was to provide a platform where classic sightings are not dismissed so easily and given a more thorough analysis from the point of view of a "believer".

Second was to highlight the latest news from Loch Ness and there is nothing more important in this respect than sighting reports. So, with that in mind, this posting will be updated whenever a new claim to have seen Nessie appears in the media. It will be a permanent link below our picture of Nessie on the right hand side of the page.

I do not claim that every sighting logged is actually of the Loch Ness Monster, I will give my opinion when there is enough data to merit it but I leave the reader to form their own opinion.

There is also a second section which logs sightings from years past which I think have not appeared in the general literature before.

If any reader has further information to add to the log, add a comment to this post and it will automatically be sent to my email account (shimei123@yahoo.co.uk).

Alternatively, email me at the above address if you want to keep it private.

  1. Hi, I recently sent you an email and forgot to ask about a sighting I read about in your blog. Problem is I can't for the life of me find where I read about it. It involved local fisherman following a creature only to come across several more(was it 5?) creatures, then having the larger one follow them. If true it was a remarkable encounter and one I would like to have learned more about - you didn't comment on it - was there a reason why?

  2. Hello, I do not know how to contact you but I am another webcam sighter, I have a picture taken this year in 2013 from the cam and it is very curious. I wanted to guard this picture but now I can't resist wanting to let people know "Nessies", whatever these creatures may be, are still alive and kicking in 2013.
