Nick Thurston and Emma Louise Jones were holidaying at the loch when they saw what they say was Nessie from the Jacobite Queen. “As we sailed along I saw a hump, much like that of a bridge, which was dark brown in colour and was relative to Urquhart Castle,” explained Miss Jones.

Gordon MacDonald and his family saw something rise out of the water to a height of 5 or 6 metres, three quarters of the way across the loch. They said that the creature was ‘massive’ and created a large wash. They were fishing at Dores at the time and the sighting was witnessed by 4 people.

An Inverness lady was driving south at 11.30 am on the A82 near the youth hostel at Allt Sigh. She stopped as she saw a black cone shaped creature circle round in a whirlpool like motion about one quarter of the way across the loch. Familiar with the loch she said that she had never seen anything like it before. The sighting lasted 4 minutes and the weather conditions were clear with no wind.
Loren Coleman is one of the world’s leading cryptozoologists, some say “the” leading living cryptozoologist. Certainly, he is acknowledged as the current living American researcher and writer who has most popularized cryptozoology in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Starting his fieldwork and investigations in 1960, after traveling and trekking extensively in pursuit of cryptozoological mysteries, Coleman began writing to share his experiences in 1969. An honorary member of Ivan T. Sanderson’s Society for the Investigation of the Unexplained in the 1970s, Coleman has been bestowed with similar honorary memberships of the North Idaho College Cryptozoology Club in 1983, and in subsequent years, that of the British Columbia Scientific Cryptozoology Club, CryptoSafari International, and other international organizations. He was also a Life Member and Benefactor of the International Society of Cryptozoology (now-defunct). Loren Coleman’s daily blog, as a member of the Cryptomundo Team, served as an ongoing avenue of communication for the ever-growing body of cryptozoo news from 2005 through 2013. He returned as an infrequent contributor beginning Halloween week of 2015. Coleman is the founder in 2003, and current director of the International Cryptozoology Museum in Portland, Maine.
