“…it is true that Nessie has been seen, photographed and sonared but that can also be said of ghosts, fairies and boggarts. Isn’t it possible that what we have here is not a ‘cryptoid’ at all, but a local kelpie legend (mythical Gaelic water beast) that caught the imagination of the world’s press before getting a little out of hand? Perhaps the single most impressive thing about Nessie is that prior to 1933 accounts are hard to come by: in fact, they are almost embarrassing in terms of their absence (another post, another day). However, there are a handful of kelpie accounts from Ness.”
So writes Dr. Beachcombing in a new article titled Was Nessie A Kelpie?
