This week brings us another case where we thought we knew something and there’s more to find. People have been searching for Nessie (the mysterious Loch Ness creature) since 1933. Even though there have been numerous sightings, photos and even video to support the idea that something is in the Loch, no one has been able to locate the creature. How is that possible? Loch Ness only covers about 22 square miles. Yes, it’s a lot of space, but it’s all boxed in. With all of the so
After nearly a quarter of a century, Steve Feltham is still on the hunt for Nessie, the mysterious creature reported to inhabit Loch Ness in the Scottish Highlands.

David “Crusty” Herron snapped this photo of what he dubbed “Lost Nessie” from a distance of about 600 feet from shore. Last Friday, the scene from Magnetic Island off the northern coast of Australia must have looked like something straight out of The Lost World. Beachgoers were treated to the sight of what appeared to be a long-necked sea going creature straight out of our prehistoric past. The strange looking object moving in the water was extraordinary enough to get the at
Today the Loch Ness Monster turned eighty years-old. At least, that is her “modern monster” age, as I like to say. It has been exactly eighty years, to the day, since Aldie Mackay had her first sighting of the legendary aquatic Scottish beast. In 1933 the hotel manager witnessed what she described as a “whale-like fish.” Since that time the creature of the murky Highland depths has become one of the most iconic cryptids in the world, drawing thousands of tourists and creature

Some say this is one of the best photos of the Loch Ness monster ever. Has Skipper George Edwards finally captured the fabled Nessie on film after 21 years of searching?

Has the Loch Ness Monster known as 'Nessie' been caught on sonar? This mobile phone photo supposedly shows the sonar read-out of what is said to be the Loch Ness Monster herself, Nessie. Has she finally been discovered or has someone gotten a little ahead of themselves? The sonar image showing a large, unidentified, living object deep underwater was recorded by Loch Ness boat skipper Marcus Atkinson.

Loch Ness - local couple saw shape in the water Move over, Bigfoot — Nessie’s back! Glad to see our old friend is making headlines again. It was starting to seem like Sasquatch had been hogging all the spotlight lately.
