A Loch Ness Monster hunter believes he spotted the mythical creature on camera when it ‘popped’ up right in front of his eyes.
But is the sighting enough to convince you?
Nessie isn’t exactly known for being the most photo-friendly creature, but Eoin O’Faodhagain from Ireland, is confident the monster made an appearance recently at Shoreland Lodges, near Fort Augustus on the loch’s southern shore.
Eoin spotted the intriguing object, which he believes was more than 20 feet long, while monitoring the webcam set up at the site during a ‘clear evening’.
He recalled: “The calm conditions and clear evening colours of the surrounding landscape were picturesque, the only thing missing was the Loch Ness Monster, and up she popped!”
As Eoin watched the camera, it panned and came to a stop to show something gliding just under the surface of the water. The line of movement resembled a bird coming in to land on the water, or a boat cutting through the surface, only there was no bird or boat to speak of.
“The length of the visible wake is in excess of 20 feet, and the creature responsible must be very large underneath the water,” Eoin said.
“Certainly it’s too large for known animals or fish that live in the loch – otters would never reach sizes of that magnitude, or seals for that matter.
“When I spotted the wake and the camera stopped rotating, to see the water breaking was exhilarating.”
Eoin believes the water where he spotted the movement drops steeply to as deep as 450 feet, indicating there could be something big lurking in the depths.
The most recent sighting comes just a few weeks after Eoin spotted two humps emerging from the water of the loch – a sight which led him to believe Nessie might not be alone in the Scottish water.
It also marks the third sighting he believes he’s had of the creature this year, prompting the monster hunter to note: “There seems to be a buzz of activity in this location since the lull of winter.”
From his home in County Donegal, Eoin regularly logs on to watch the webcam which is maintained by Visit Inverness Loch Ness (VILN).
He’s responsible for multiple previous entries in the Official Loch Ness Monster Sightings Register, though new rules concerning webcam sightings mean the register has yet to record an entry in 2023.
