A couple visiting the Scottish highlands have recorded a mysterious creature with a black head and neck protruding from the water in the Loch. “We have been to Loch Ness many times, but never seen the monster before,” said Gloria. “But at around 1.30pm [on Tuesday] just after we had lunch, my husband was driving and I was in the passenger seat gazing out at the loch. Then I suddenly saw something and I said to Ian ‘there’s something down there.’ “He turned around and we got out of the car and there it was. We were very excited. It was about 300 meters away and definitely black. It seemed to have a neck and head.” “I could definitely see its back and it was a fair size. It disappeared after a minute beneath the water.” The sighting even got the attention of the keeper of the official Loch Ness Monster Register, Gary Campbell.
