Loch Ness rears its head again

The mystery of the Loch-Ness monster has bewildered the world for generations. Retired delivery driver Colin Veacock is the ninth person to lay eyes on Nessie this year. Veacock was visiting from Liverpool when he parked in last layby north of Urquhart Castle. Scanning the water with his binoculars he noticed something across the Loch.

“He originally thought it was a foot high and some five foot long, but later was able to compare it with the Jacobite Warrior tourist cruise boat as it passed by the area,” said Gary Campbell, keeper of the Official Loch Ness Monster Sightings Register, which has accepted the glimpse as record.

“As such, he stated that what he observed was easily the length of the handrail at the rear of that boat which led him to re-assess what he saw as nearly two-foot high and ten to twelve feet long. He said the same was witnessed by two other families in the layby.”

Eleven days prior to Veacock’s discovery, a man and his daughter from Chester reported seeing an unidentified movement in the loch.

“They said a cruise boat had passed some 20 minutes earlier but that there was no boat activity at the time of the sighting,” said Campbell.

“He said a hump came up going against the waves, looking like a turtle’s back, black in colour with a green tinge to it. He reported that the weather was warm and sunny with excellent visibility.

“It’s great to welcome people back to Loch Ness and with Nessie there to greet them. All these sightings are credible.”
