Morag resurfaces – Don’t call it a comeback

Yeah, something lives in the lake, whatever it is. (But a mystery monster? Doubtful indeed.)

Tourists’ shock as Morag of Loch Morar – Scotland’s second most famous monster – makes a comeback after 20 years – Daily Record.

Scotland’s second most famous Loch monster – Morag of Loch Morar – has made a comeback.

Holidaymaker Doug Christie, a recently retired oil industry engineer not given to flights of fancy, said he couldn’t believe his eyes when he saw a solid 20ft black shape in the water.

He and wife Charlotte say they saw the beast three times during a stay at Kisimuil B&B by the loch. Doug, 66, from Brechin, Angus, said: “I could not believe my eyes.

They saw it three times, once for over 10 minutes, it didn’t move much, and all they got was this one picture? Really? Where’s the rest? This picture is less than impressive and could be a number of different animals besides jumping to the monster conclusion.

Very disappointing and reeks of hyperbole and a tourism agenda. I don’t doubt that the people saw something but to say it’s a monster is completely unwarranted. It’s likely a big fish or several other possibilities. We have zero good evidence for a unknown monster living in this lake or any other. What’s truly unknown is what out of the many reasonable possibilities this could be.

    A better inquiry or mystery in this sense would be why so many possess such an obsession with sea monsters and sea-serpents to such an extent that every odd-looking wave or blurry image is automatically a mythological entity.

    As others have noted, just about everyone is carrying a cellphone nowadays and almost all have photo, if not video, capabilities. How can there still be nothing but grainy and out of focus images of all of these creatures and UFOs? Some guy gets in a fight on the subway or an animal (real known species) does something cute and within ten minutes it is all over Facebook, YouTube and/or Twitter.
